Scrap Cards second set

 I had a fun Scrapbooking Night last night.
4 of my friends came and we all made some cards.
I kind of forgot I was going to share how to make some cards out of scraps....until someone reminded me, then they were all teasing me  ;)
So I came up with this easy card a few weeks ago for a card Sharon wanted to make.
A much easier sketch then the last set of scrap cards.

I even did a bit of colouring on this one. I only used 3 colours and I didn't even need my cheater glasses, lol.
I used my copics on the dragonfly.

I made a few cards today as well.
I guess I have another set to give away. I am going to make a few more for an even dozen.
I like this set for the fact that I got to use my cardstock scraps as well.

Here are the measurements for this card.
Base= 8.5x5.5  score in half to get a 5.5x 4 1/2 (card)
Card Front= 5 1/4 x4(card stock)
Panels= 2.5 x 3 13/16 (pattern paper)
Middle panel= 2x 3 1/4 (card stock)
Stamped panel= 1 13/16x 3 1/16

You can play around with the measurements to fit your scraps.
I did. If you notice some of the space between the pattern paper are different then others.

Onto My Day:
Everyone had to work today except for Ashley and I.
I worked on a video of my die organization...which took most of the afternoon. Not sure why it took so long, but it did.  I will share the video tomorrow.

I am now watching (not really) a football game. Well actually Wayne is watching it and I am doing book work. Is it sad that I would rather work then watch football.
Mind you those guys with their tight pants are pretty easy on the eyes ;)

I hope you all had a creative Saturday :)
