Handy Tip to save cardstock

Today’s Tip:

I have a cool tip for you this week!

Imagine this….. You plan on making a card and you take out a certain colour from your scrap pile. You have a perfectly sized piece of card stock…….but oh no, it has a circle shape already punched out of it.

Tuesday Tip

See the photo above…..I have a perfectly sized layer I would like to use on my card front, but it has a Circle punched out of it. Why wouldn’t you be able to use this? Keep scrolling….

Tuesday Tip

I layered my Designer paper over a Primrose Petals card front and then….

Tuesday Tip

I covered it with another larger scallop circle punch. Hang on, where did the circle punch hole go? It is hidden under the top punch layer! Would anyone ever know?………No. This is a great way to save some card stock.

Another tip….before you glue all your layers together when setting up your card, if you decide you are going to use a sentiment and a punch, punch that sentiment layer out of one of your layers so it’s hidden and then glue your layers in place!

I ended up using this card as a birthday card and not a get well card which I had stamped sentiment for, so I flipped it over and stamped again. Another example of never wasting any card!

And this is what I came up with!
