Thank You Cards from Scraps

 I wasn't born anytime close to the Great Depression, but I know that my frugality sometimes makes it seem that way! I always keep leftover bits of this and that because I know that with my simple style, it doesn't take a lot of stuff to make a card or scrapbook page.

So naturally I keep a basket of leftover die cuts and punched pieces on the ready! I recently needed to make a batch of thank you cards, so I dug around in it to see what I could find. I pulled out four die cut hearts and four flowers and matched them up to four card bases I had already cut. I dug through my drawers of scraps to find a strip of patterned paper for each card which would visually tie together the colors. Then I printed and cut the text and assembled each card in no time at all!

I firmly believe that you really DON'T need to spend a lot of money to make a perfectly fine card! :) Long live SIMPLICITY!

I love them! I need to sit down and use up some of my scraps to make cards.
