Card stock for card : 6 1/2 x 10 your color of choice
Card stock to back the collage pieces, your color of choice
Card stock for inside card : 6 x 4 1/2
Scrap papers colors of your choice. plain or patterned
stamps (any you might have)
colored inks of your choice

1.On a piece of paper, 5x 10 glue ripped plain or patterned paper in a random way until the paper is fully covered. Let this dry fully.
2. Stamp randomly over the collage with different stamps and different colors to add design. ( I did not do this on this piece, but you will see it on my other samples.)
3.Stamp with the versa mark and add embossing powder. Heat with the heat tool.
4. Cut collage into 1" strips using a paper trimmer.
5.The card I am making today uses 3, 1" x 2" pieces and 3, 1"x 1" pieces. Once I have all the strips cut, I decide which of the longer strips I will cut the smaller pieces from to make my design.
6. Glue these cut pieces to the backing color, for my card, this is silver. Then cut out a 1/8" matt around it. I use the perfect layers rulers . You could also use a paper trimmer, or skip this step if desired.
7.Fold your 6 1/2 "x 10" paper in half with a bone folder, (this is the main card). Attach the pieces to your card as shown in the final picture. I added a ribbon and a birthday sentiment to this card.Glue the 6" x 4 1/2" piece of card stock inside the card to finish.
Please see the following samples for other card ideas. I apologize for the poor picture quality.
