Spring-surprise-cardIt's a two-fer today – a card sample and a Frugal Fridays tip in one! This card uses the Spring Surprise Bundle which is only available until April 30th. You get the stamp set and punch at a great price (15% off)!  We used Wild Wasabi for this card, and I love Monochromatic cards (it's the theme of my first online class) because I don't have to think too hard about what colours to use…plus they're effective!

So that's one Frugal Friday tip – use one colour and still have a great card…but it's not the tip I am featuring today. I used the coordinating sized scallop circle punches on this card – and the scallop circle behind the "Thank U" image is the same Wild Wasabi cardstock as the backing for the main image area.  THAT'S the Frugal Fridays tip!! See the picture below…

Frugal-tipPunch the backing circle from your backing cardstock in an unobtrusive area (i.e. not right at the edge where it might show…). Noone will be the wiser…unless they deconstruct your card like I did to this one (because I forgot to take the photo first LOL), or unless they see this post 😉

Frugal Fridays Tips are a semi regular feature on www.yamstamps.com – designed to help you save some crafting time and money! If you want to "save" some more money…be sure to check out the retiring Stampin' Up! products in my online store – some of which are on sale up to 60% off!!
