I had a big pile of scraps left from my Christmas cards and started creating some cards from the pieces. At first I did a few and then decided I needed some flowers for embellishing. So I cut 20 flowers in blue belle, sapphire and whites daisy. I used my cricut to fussy cut the flower from the old Chelsea Gardens stamp. (C1709) Then to finalize the flowers I stamped them with embossing ink and heat embossed them with gold powder.
So now that I had a bowl of flowers I could dive into creating some cards.
The branches and gold leaves are all from the leftovers too. If you like watching process videos, here’s mine from these cards.

What an excellent use of leftover bits and pieces. You have taken scraps and made them beautiful! Thanks for sharing the process video!
Your glue dot use for holding thread accents has opened up creative options for me without resulting to the use of “bad words”! In fact, glue dots that have been languishing in my supply stash are now actually being put to better use than making me wonder why I had purchased them. Obviously, they were waiting for you to educate me!
