I recycle our household waste, but I don't generally recycle card-making stuff, so working out what to do proved to be a bit of a challenge at first. I then came up with the idea of using some recycled corrugated cardboard and some pretty pink paper a bunch of flowers was wrapped in that was presented to me on my last day of work.
My card has a Crumb Cake card base and some First Edition patterned paper which was grunged up by over-stamping with the Hardwood background stamp in Fog ink, then stamping some of the images from Grunge Me using Crumb Cake ink. Once that was done, I distressed and sponged the edges.
The flower was made using some floral paper that has the texture of interfacing (I have no idea what it's called!). I die-cut several scallop circles and wet them before scrunching them up. Once they were dry, I opened them out and stacked them together.
The banner was white embossed with a birthday greeting and some silver thread was positioned behind the flower.
Thanks so much for visiting. Be sure to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the design team.
