Out Of The Shoe Box

Good Morning all,
 I have a trio of cards to share with you today!
Recently I was lucky enough to snap up some crafty stash when a friend 
was having a crafty clearout! 
I love to do this, as not only can it work out a cheaper
 way to get some stash but you can also use the chance to play with 
things you may not normally purchase! 
It's also ideal if you make cards for charities etc.
These cards were all made from an A4 die cut sheet that was 
intended to make just one card.

This card is a little A6 offering. I cut a decorative edge around the image & one 
of the sentiments provided (there were two) using a rotary cutter.
These were popped up on some foam tape for dimension.
  I added a border rom the kit, some fluffy fibres & a couple of buttons from 
my stash to embellish. The inside of this card has a plain insert.

The second card is also A6, lanscape this time!
I simply matted one of the panels onto a piece of white card on which I had
a punched border & inked using a Colour Q liquid chalk inkpad.
I added a single button to embellish.
The inside of this card was decorated with a panel of white CS & a
couple of small decorative panels.

The final 6x6in square card was made using what was the backof the original
card & another panel which was trimmed down to make a topper.
The topper was matted on to some black CS. The sentiment was
popped up on some foam tape. I added some ribbon &  black lace 
from my stash. The inside was decorated too!
Here's a photo of them all together!

I hope this inspires you to think out of the box a little when you look at
 those little kits you have languishing about in your stash!
Thanks for stopping by!
