Easy Handmade Card Idea Using Ephemera Packs

Howdy cowgirls and cowboys!

Design Team Member Kate is here today to share with you an easy idea for making a stack of cards! You may have noticed we now carry Scrapbook Ephemera Packs. We have tons of Echo Park and Carta Bella Ephemera Packs and several from Simple Stories, called Bits & Pieces Packs. In most cases we also carry coordinating papers.

For this easy card idea, Kate grabbed three pieces of paper from a particular paper line, plus the coordinating ephemera pack and then got busy creating. She choose to focus her designs on cowboy crafts using the adorable cowboy papers from the Simple Stories Howdy! line

Each of these scrapbook ephemera packs has 30-50 designs in them, so you can create a ton of cards from just one pack. Dump out all the little pieces and use them to create little scenes for your cards.

You can stretch your supplies even further if you grab patterned papers that have cut apart cards on one side. These are squares that have small little designs and sentiments on them and they are great for card making too.
