Collage Scrap Cardmaking

Since I got into scrapbooking and cardmaking, I've amassed a giant amount of paper scraps. Many are too big to just throw away, so I decided to do something with my favorite ones. I made some lovely quick and easy cards, using a white card base and combing Graphic 45's "A Ladies' Diary" and pieces of inexpensive doilies. The scraps of coordinating papers and the doilies, overlap making an interesting collage for most any occasion card. I love to use them for birthdays and anniversaries.

Try it yourself with coordinating papers and bits of doilies or even lace or ribbon to embellish your collage card.

Have fun...enjoy.
