I love making cards with my leftover paper, usually after making a layout or mini I use what's left on my desk to make some quick cards.

The first card is a quick birthday card made with some leftover Fifth and Frolic from Dear Lizzy.  I used the chipboard typewriter and with my typewriter typed the sentiment so it looked like it was coming from the typewriter.

I really love the wooden buttons so I added just a few and some twine to finish off the card.

The second is a card made with some leftover paper from Imaginisce.  I decided to make a sunburst and stamp the cute little sun stamp.

I stamped the sun on orange paper then cut it out.  I added some twine and a fun summer sentiment.

What do you do with your leftovers?
Thanks for stopping by.

Leftovers are perfect for cards and it makes for having to put less away when you're done. LOL! Love these!

Gorgeous cards! I tend to make cards on the weekend and love to use my scraps and 6x6 paper pads.

My left overs go into a Baggie never to see the light of day again.
I love both these cards ... especially the second one.
