Super Simple Cards from Scraps...

I had promised to make some handmade cards as a door prize drawing for my son's high school graduating class.  I wanted to make them super quick and easy.    

For the masculine cards I used the leftover paper from my Tommy mini-scrapbook project.  So nice to use up the scraps and stickers!  I also used the big "THANKS" image from my favorite Thank You stamp set (retired) and Casual Expressions (D1525, $17.95 for 12 stamps).

I also used some Burlap Ribbon (Z1760).  LOVE it!  Flat and bumpy at the same time.

The feminine cards were even easier!  A friend had given me this paper.  I LOVE the colors!  On the first two cards I just stamped the sentiments on a strip of paper and glued it down.  On the second two cards I stamped directly onto the paper.  I LOVE easy!  Of course, I embellished with Bitty Sparkles (Z1263) and Liquid Glass (Z679).  No card should go unembellished, right?

Hope this inspires you to use up some of your stashed-paper today!  (Plus, it made me happy to get something accomplished.)
