Use your scraps

 Lately I've been trying to use up scraps of Stampin'Up! DSP from older suites as the annual catalogue will be out soon.  

I really love this paper from the Hues of Happiness Suite, the dies are lovely too with some that cut out the pretty blooms and there are useful stamps in the set. 

Here is what I made with some scraps

Card base -  5 3/4 x 8 1/4 hewavy weight basic white, scored at 4 1/8. (US  5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score at 4 1/4)

Ordinary basic white - 2 x 5 1/2, score every 1/2" on long side - do not fold

scraps 1/2" wide DSP, co-ordinating cardstock
Flowers and leaves cut from DSP

Here is how I made it:

 Comparing the embossed card front and plain one I made first; I like both, just different.

Thanks so much for joining me.
