How to Use Left Over Bits on a 6x6 Pad and a Freebie

I've made another set of cards for mailing to folks on the 'From The Hearts' FB group and thought I would add a little something extra using the left over bit of my 6x6 sheet of paper.  This set is also going in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Not all my cards going to to people 'From The Heart' are faith based, but if I know that will make someone happy, those are my favorite kind to send.

This is a simple A2 size card and didn't take long to make.   I had pre printed and stamped  the focal image..
I went through my stash of 6x6 pads and found I really like this floral background, I felt like all the color and contrast made a pleasing background for the image. The image had a black frame and a mirror board frame.  I edged the floral paper with a black marker.

                                The 6x6 paper was cut to 4x5.25  This gave me a two in strip left over.                                                 So I made these with that left over :

I also used pre stamped images and my favorite card making ribbon : Hug Snug seam binding

 Because I had four focal images and only three 6x6's 

I made this fourth one a little different

This ribbon is so thin, there is no problem mailing. 

My gift for you today for your card making:

Thank for stopping by and I hope you check out 'From the Heart' and Word Art Wednesday
