     Last year, I made a card using all die cuts and a technique which allowed exact lining up of patterned dp.  You can see that card by clicking here.  After the die cutting for that card, I was left with a 'negative' piece which I put into a manila folder of  'things to be used in the future.'  Finally, more than a year later, I was browsing through that folder and decided it was time to get something made with that left over scrap.  It's pretty CAS and really works as a simple, masculine card.

What a great idea to save this piece for later use! I probably would've had it all cut up by now! LOL!! It's great to have cards like this on hand!! Very pretty papers and card my friend!
