Your challenge this month is to use your scraps to make a card. You may cut into a full sheet of paper only if needed for your card base, but all other papers used must come from your scraps. 

Bonus: One quick and easy way to make a card is to do a layout then use the scraps from that layout to make a card. Your layout leftovers will provide you with papers and embellies that coordinate and are out and ready to go! So for the bonus, complete any other August Challenge and use those scraps to make a card. You may supplement with other scraps, but incorporate a good amount of the scraps leftover from your layout. You also can use scraps on the inside and back of the card! For the bonus, also post the layout that generated the scraps for your card.

Here is the card I made, plus inside and back:
Image  
 Image Image


This is the layout that generated the scraps. I used scraps from the pawprint, rusty brown and red papers, and supplemented with yellow and dark brown scraps from my stash. "Hello" and the puppies and scalloped borders on front and inside were cut with my Cricut. I punched a pawprint and rusty brown circle for the back.

Image
For some more inspiration, see Sara's last video/post "Limited Supplies, Unlimited Possibilities" where she uses her layout scraps to make cards:
https://www.acherryontop.com/articles/L ... ject-17962

The Rules:
You may submit only one card. It must be a new, paper card (no digi).  Post to this thread by 11:59 p.m. August 31. For the bonus, also post the layout that generated the scraps for your card. You may combine with one other challenge if that challenge allows. A $5 ACOT gift card will go to one Cherry via the random number generator. Please ask if you have any questions.

I make cards 5x7 in size.  And I prefer to use 8 1/2 x 11 pp for my cards.  So I  cut the pages to 7x10 and get two strips of leftover scrap paper for each card I make.  I have a HUGE box of these scrap strips that I use for all kinds of things.     That is what these scraps are from primarily.  I did go into my regular scrap paper box for the square I stamped the greeting on.'

That sounds like a great system. Those strips would be handy, and I like how you used them on your card!

Thank you for hosting this challenge! Embellishing with scraps was a definite challenge but I'm glad to be pushed to experiment with fussy cutting and embossing.
Bonus layout provided.
(Combined with GD Challenge #1)

I always look through my scrap basket first before making cards.
For these cards I had cut out the circles with the dogs and have had them in a drawer for ever wanting to make some cards.  
Made it pretty easy.

Great challenge!  Here's my entry, also combining with the August Manufacturer's challenge.  For the bonus, here's the layout I made for the August Sketch with a Twist, too.  I used my patterned paper scraps from the layout for my card:

I love making cards with my scraps, but don't often take the time to do it. Thanks for the motivation.
Here's my card. It's a birthday card for my son.

Great challenge, Rhonda! I'm trying to get in the mindset of using up the scraps before they make it to the scrap box LOL!

here is my card and below is the layout the scraps came from :)

August is a busy birthday month for me - friends (and used to be Dad's :(  ) so I had no excuse not to do your challenge! Because I have a load of scraps, just like I'm sure everyone on here does!  Here's mine:
