Crafty Wednesday / Card Design #4


Got another cute card for you today. This one is about using scraps, since there are lots of small papers.


  • 4.25” square card blank (The one I used was dark pinkish)
  • 1.25” x 4” patterned paper (mine has flowers)
  • 1.5” x 3” patterned paper (mine was green)
  • 1.5” x 3” patterned paper (blue polkadots)
  • 3 flowers of decreasing size (I used a Cricut something or other, but you could use anything you’ve got. Or make them the same size, like from a punch, and just layer them differently)
  • mini brad
  • button
  • 3” + 2” ribbon
  • vellum quote or some sort of sentiment
  • black fine point sharpie
  • small hole punch


Rip the blue polka dot paper on one of the 3” sides. Glue flower paper vertically and the green and blue papers horizontally, leaving gaps between each.

With the black sharpie, make zig zag stitch marks along the gaps. Glue vellum flush with right side and centered in the space remaining on the front card blank.

Glue the longer strip of ribbon overlapping the flower paper a little bit. Punch a small hole in the middle of all the flowers and insert brad. Glue to top of ribbon, overlapping the stitching.

Take the shorter ribbon and fold it in half. Glue down both ends about halfway up the flower stem. Add button.

This card will fit in a regular invitation envelope, which is why I made the card blank 4.25” square :)

How lovely! I love making cards and often use torn paper. I think it's a beautiful touch to scrapbooking/card making
