The cards were so much fun to make and guess what? They are made with scraps! Yes, I said Scraps!!!! I always end up with strips of cardstock left over from various projects that are between 1/2 inch and 2" wide. I just took several of those strips of various widths and SNAILED them onto a sheet of cardstock, butting up the edges so there were in gaps in-between the various strips.
Next, I cut them into sections that are 2 3/4 x 5" wide (if you start with 11" long cardstock, you can cut 4 of these from each piece). To give them a little texture and interest, I ran them through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Impressions Folder. Attach them to various colors of cardstock and then mount on different colored card bases. I used the sentiments from the absolutely adorable Curly Cute stamp set, stamping on each card with Black Stazon Ink. Add a little trim (I cut these adorable shapes using the new Tasteful Trim Die (available on September 1st in the Holiday Mini Catalog) and the Big Shot and some colorful ribbon and viola ... instant cuteness!
And just think, they are primarily made of scraps! How great is that!!!

Also, the Test Tube Gift Card Holders have been very popular and I continue to send out kits as quickly as I can put them together. Have you ordered yours yet?
