Scrappy Greeting Card

Fancy cards are so expensive. Here's an idea for a quick and fun card that every quilter with scraps can whip up for next to nothing! I got the idea and instructions from a very special and creative blog, homemade ginger. (You might recognize the author as my daughter!)
I picked up an inexpensive greeting card with the sentiment that I needed and went to town ripping up some fabric strips to sew onto the card. To decorate the matching gift card sleeve I added a little gathered ruffle. There are so many possibilities...look here and here.
Go ahead....give it a try! 
*Warning: Making these can be addictive!
