Determined not to waste the piece, I went ahead and made a card that was designed vertically instead of horizonally. I don't think it will show but the black paper is the Black Licorice Dot and the white is is Powdered Sugar both being from Lasting Impressions. Buttons are also from Lasting Impressions. The scalloped edge was made with a Martha Stewart punch.
The second try resulted in this card. Once again all of the papers are from Lasting Impressions.
The colored papers on these two cards have been discontinued but I do still have some in stock if you see something you would like. Thanks for looking and hope you are having a great day!

Today I saw an email that had come from a Yahoo group and it had a link to a card that one of the ladies had made. She used one of the corner CB folders that I also have and have never really found a good use for. I loved her card. Hers is more elegant but I just posted one of the cards I made with her ideas for using the CB folders. There are two scored lines between the CB folder designs - they don't show up very well on this picture. I think I would do the ribbon different with either a knot or a bow..........and maybe use a sheer ribbon.
Pink paper and ribbon are from Paper Trey. The little pink flowers are translucent and are from Hero Arts. They had two little holes so I put the tiny pearl embellishments over the holes. Pearls were also from Hero Arts. I hope they survive being mailed.

Stampin Up and the stamped image is a Penny Black stamp. The inks I used were VersaColor, Bamboo, Old Rose and Marigold.
I embossed the front of the card using the two Cuttlebug folders running them through the CB at the same time and leaving a space to run two scored lines with my Scor-Pal.

About two years ago I purchased the Spellbinders Baseball/Softball die along with the baseball brads from a store that was closing. Being from the town where "The Final Season" was filmed in large part, I wanted to do some cards done with the baseball theme. Well, it's taken me too long to come up with something. I finally got this card put together this morning for a little boy's birthday.I chose the CB folder for the background on the Snickerdoodle cardstock from Lasting Impressions. The brown layer is cardstock from Stampin Up.
This was a card I kind of "threw together" using a piece I had already stamped and stored for future use. Stamp is from Paper Inspirations.
And finally, this was a new stamp I just purchased from Penny Black. I love coloring the Penny Black Hedgehog designs. Items I used were Powdered Sugar paper from Lasting Impressions, scrap of yellow for one of the layers, Nestabilities for cutting the layers and the CB Swiss Dots folder for embossing a portion of the front of the card. Coloring was done with Copic Markers.
