H2H11 Scrappy of a different sort

Since I already made my dad's Father's day present last week I thought I would make cards for my brother and brother-in-law. I thought I would challenge myself and look through all my paper packets and see which one had the fewest scraps. It was Boom-Di-Ada. The scraps were left over from a class I took from my CTMH consultant. Here is what I started with.

I looked in the Wishes book and chose the Collage pattern since it had 6 different scraps of squares. I also made my 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card open from the bottom instead of the side since that's what size scrap I had. I also got out my new Sew EZ sewing machine for the first time. I'm still not sure about it, we'll see. This is the first card I made for my brother.

I didn't have a scrap piece of B&T paper to cover the whole card front so I used a piece of cardstock on the side.

Then I decided, I might as well use the rest of the scraps and I created a card for my brother-in-law. Thanks to inspiration from She made a card with a label from a beer bottle. My brother-in-law likes Flying Dog beer and when he was visiting once, he peeled the label off and it has been on my fridge since then. Thought I would send it back to him in a card and tell him I hope he gets to drink a cold one on his day.

Thanks for the challenge. It was fun. All products are CTMH (except the Flying Dog label). Gotta get these cards in the mail!
