Recycled birthday card

Post by lyndaejane on Mon 26 Jan 2015 - 11:37



Everything recycled, except the card blank and the double-sided tape I used! The self-patterned background (glossy on matt) was the sides from a box of chocolates: box was shaped like a Roses box (narrower at the bottom) so that gave me the idea for the background. Not sure if it needs something else, though.

That's perfect for a mans card, strong colours and not fussy. Good design.

Great as it is for a man, if you wanted you could put a coordinating bow or a gem on for a lady, but it's fine as it is.
I'm the same, can't do clean and simple.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

Pink not really suitable for a man, I'm afraid - Steve said the same, though!

Doesn't look that pink in the photo, more red with bit of pink around the message.
Couple of gems then to bling it up a bit for a ladys card.

Definitely pink, and the design in the background is a bit flowery. I thought of gems too, Di: planned as a female card, so think that's what I'll do.

That's how I started, with recycled stuff: once you start saving things, you can't stop!
