Using scraps

I make it a point to use up my scrap pieces of paper right away, otherwise it ends up in my "drawer of doom" never to be used again...mostly because I am too lazy to root through it to find what I am looking for. So as I finish my projects, and have these strips of pretty paper laying around, I come up with ways to use them up.
On this card, I cut the strips of paper to 4" and adhered them to my card. All the pieces are different thicknesses depending on what was left, and that doesn't matter, as long as they are all the same length (4"). Then I used a long image for the center...I used this cute reindeer stamp I had (not SU, but I just love him). I love the way this turned out, and in fact made several of these cards to give away.
Hope you can all find ways to use your scraps...if you have any tips, please share!
Thanks for stopping by!
