2018's crop of birthday cards

One from very much recycled materials:



Apart from the gold studs in the corners, the remaining components were salvaged when I rationalised the projects I've done at workshop: this was recycled jars, many years ago, before it became trendy.  I had two samples, so just left one in my workshop box and reclaimed the other one, probably to decorate and put a tealight in. I carefully removed the papers and cords and suddenly realised they would probably work as a male card, mounted on a DL-size blank. The central silver and gold paper is recycled wrapping paper and the card used for the tag is recycled, as are the cords. Doesn't show up that well, sorry, should have put something darker behind it, but it does look quite effective for minimal work!
