MCT ~ Thrifty Thursday

Today is Thrifty Thursday over at My Creative Time. This is when Emma and the design team take their scraps, leftover or a recyclable item and use it for our projects. I am always game on using scraps since I seem to have an endless stack!
For my quick and easy project, I thought I would use my scraps to make a note and gift card holder for the back of my box card I made a few weeks ago. Click here for all the details. My paper is from an embossing mistake in my first attempt to make the box card. I just cut it down to fit on the back. Then I used a piece of scrap vellum paper that I used on a project from this post, click here. Since I save the tiniest pieces of paper, I was able to use more scrap for my sentiment too! I will list all the materials below.
This is my project before I attached it to the back of my box card.
Picture of it attached to the box card. LOL!!!

Materials Used:
Paper ~ PTI scraps
Ink ~ VersaFine and VersaMark
embossing powder

That is it for ma today! Please head on over to My Creative Time to see what the design team has done with their scraps. Also don't forget we have a Designer Challenge going to as well! Click here for all the details!
