So I tried my hand at creating a card using some recycled items... thus the title of my post. The challenge this week at The Paper Players challenge blog is to use recycled items (envelopes, flyers, etc.) on your card. To be honest I don't often look at the stuff I recycle as something I could use on my card. But I decided to give it a go for those lovely gals over at The Paper Players.
My card follows a sketch I got from the Hero Arts blog (sorry that I don't have the graphic) and uses a recycled envelope I got in a package from Gymboree and part of a mailer (the plaid strip) I received from our local utility company on... yep... recycling, tee hee!! The card is pretty clean and simple... just how I like it. I hauled out my Cricut and used it to cut all the shapes used on the card, except the orange star in the center of the big star. That one is a stamp from the Hero Arts set Galaxy of Stars. I stamped it on the envelope and then trimmed out.
Thanks for taking a peek... if you have never played with The Paper Players you should!! And now I need to say a big "Thank You" to The Paper Players for you see last week they picked my entry in their previous challenge as the "Headliner"!!
