MC Nov/13 - Die Cut Waste - Xmas cards

So what do you do with a bunch of die cut waste...
At my last quilling session, one of my friends was die cutting these mini pine sprigs (Impression Obsession) for an upcoming class she was going to be teaching... She was gathering up all the waste and about to throw it in the garbage. I stopped her and asked if I could have them. BIG GRIN she said yes.

These are the cards I made using the waste. Still have a bit more that I can use, but thought I'd stop today at 4 cards. on any card image to see more details and descriptions etc. Enjoy.
All the cards are using quotes from Quietfire Design

Great cards - they have given me something to think about, as I have looked at my die cut waste and wondered if I could do something with it. Thanks for playing along at Fab'n Funky.

Waste paper has never looked so elegant! Isn't funny how one person does only see trash and the other sees treasure? I love that you salvaged these 'scraps'....I would have too!!
Thanks so much for sharing this week at TTCRD. We hope to see you back very soon!

Wonderful idea (one I need to follow, :) ). Your cards are gorgeous. Love the white with the green the best but all are beautiful. The texture from the embossing is awesome. Thanks so much for playing along with us in The Sisterhood of Crafters in our Embossing Challenge.
