Two Quick Cards from Paper Scraps

I haven't shared any cards in awhile, mainly because I haven't made any!  But last weekend, I had a number of letters I needed to send and a paper scrap box filled to overflowing.  It seemed a little card making fun was in order. I had such a fun time turning one large leftover sheet into two quick cards.
The leftover sheet was one of those papers that could be cut into several borders, as it has rows of coordinating designs on it.  I simply cut it to size, no extra layering of papers was needed to add interest.

A scrap of orange checked paper became a mat for a mounted sticker and a little bow gives it the extra bit of embellishment needed to take the card from okay to special.  I also used a little foam tape between the white paper and orange checked mat for a extra dimension.
The second card was sent off to my mother-on-law with a quick note of thanks from E for a back to school clothes shopping gift card Grandma provided.
Once again it's just the leftover paper cut to fit and a tad bit of embellishing for a quick card.  The layers and bow are deluxe additions when used on store bought cards and I think these extra bits of lovely, are simple was to make something thoughtful.

Do you ever make your own cards?  What is your favorite reason for sending a handmade greeting?
