Money Saving Tip

I thought for my club ladies I would show them some money saving tips, since I always loved the cards which lots of layers of paper, but always felt like I was wasting paper. For these two cards I used Close to my Hearts Veranda and Creative Basics Veranda Collection papers. The stamp sets were True Friends January's stamp of the month and the stamp set from the Felicity collection which is only available this month. The bottom picture show how I took the bottom layer of cardstock and cut out the portion which was hidden by the pattern paper. From this piece I used it to mount three other pieces of pattern paper on the card and even had a piece leftover. To save on ribbon, I did not use a whole piece, all I used was enough to tuck under the paper, great way to use those scrap pieces of ribbon. The pattern came from Mojo Monday week 94.
