There are several challenges out there to use leftover's to create a card. I recently bought the container on the right below and organizer my leftovers that I really liked and on the left is cards, die cuts etc that I want to use up so this is where I headed.
Everything you see on the card except the gemstones came from these two containers. The card front was already scored, the frame was from a die cut from Impression Obsession that cuts out about 8 frames at one time so no waste to your cardstock so I keep the leftovers. The die cut flowers (from vellum) was on loan from a friend for an evening so I cut out a bunch of those. Thanks Patti! The embossed butterfly was leftover from when duct tape and embossing was the rage. A close up is below, it is actually silver but the gems give it a pinkish glow with photographing.
This card did not even take 10 minutes! I think I will play with my leftovers a bit more, this was so much fun.
