Waste not, want not!


Life kinda got in the way today and sabotaged the plans I had made, resulting in no time at all to get to my desk until laaaate!  Consequently I tried to think of a card I could make that would be interesting to look at, but not a lot of work, lol  Kind of like the holy grail for cardmakers I guess!

A few weeks ago when I took the class with Tim Holtz, we lined configuration boxes with pieces of the Lost and Found card stack.  These squares were some of the corner pieces that were cut out and discarded (see?  I told you it was always worth saving those little leftover bits!).  Matted onto black cardstock, I think they make for a striking card, with minimum outlay and minimum effort :)

I love it when an artist helps me to see the beauty in things that have been cast aside, things that I might otherwise not give a second glance. I love how you have taken a few of these things and made them special by turning them into the focus of this really evocative card. Wonderful concept brought to life through your usual brilliant craft!
