First Non-Rubber Stamping Card!

Hey Everyone! Here are cards I made for this new transition to my blog sites. I made these paper-craft (non-rubber stamping) cards last night. This is a FABULOUS way to reduce your scraps of cardstocks that you have piling up in your folders or drawers. The measurement of the tree is outlined on the sketch below!

To decorate the tree, I just used stickers from Stickopotamus. If you don't have ornament stickers, you can also punch out circles and squares using paper punches to create ornaments. I'll create a card next time using punches. I did do a little rubber stamping on the cards because I didn't have a sentiment sticker that fit into my design so I rubber stamped the sentiments.

If you haven't read my post regarding changes on my blog sites, click here. It'll explain what I'll be doing on this blog site as well as Stampin Inspirations. If you are a rubber stamper, visit Stampin Inspirations . . .I posted a few rubber stamped cards this morning! Check it out.
