You know I'm trying to get rid of my scrap stack, so I was quite happy to find SheetLoad. Each month brings a new issue with a sketch, samples, and diagrams to cut enough for 8 cards with minimal waste. Oh what a happy girl I am! I can make a stack of cards and not add to the scrap stack - yay! Go check out the February issue, sponsored by Unity (one of my faves). Feb has a cute layout and tons of fab samples for your inspiration:
My card uses Cupcakes a la Yummy stamp set and DCWV dp. The cupcake frosting has Crystal Lacquer and microbeads. The dots on the liner are colored with gold Spica.
