Cardmaking From Scraps Challenge: What's on Your Desk?

Hello, everyone!

I thought I would do something a little different today. I just got done making a bunch cards, and my workspace was a mess! I think all crafters can relate to that. Instead of moving on to new sheets of patterned paper or clearing my desk off and putting everything into my scrap bin, I wanted to challenge myself and make a card using the materials that were already on my desk.

On my desk was a black cardstock mat  left over from the honeycomb card I posted on Instagram earlier in the week. There was also strips of polka dot paper from my collegiate card series, some white cardstock scraps, a black ink pad, and this cute friends stamp set by Hero Arts. I had my gel pens already on my desk, a little piece of foam, and a scrap of ribbon from another project, as well.

This is what I came up with! I really like the way it turned out. These materials may have just retired to my scrap bin and never see the light of day again, but this challenge allows you to immediately make use of them. If you make sets of cards to give as gifts like I often do, this is a great way to stretch your leftovers and get some single cards out of them for other occasions.

I challenge you to use what's on your desk to make something great! I hope you enjoyed this card, and I thank you for stopping by!
