Trash to Treasure

Good Morning
A bit of a different card today as I am playing along with some of the challenges at Splitcoast Stampers.
The challenge was to recycle...I knew I had saved this tissue box for a reason!  
Loved the vibrant colours.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • Like I mentioned above, my starting point was this beautiful tissue box I had saved.  I took it out, cut it down for my card front panel.
  • I die cut the 'celebrate' right into the middle of the panel.
  • I die cut the sentiment 4 more times with some white cardstock (in hindsight, I should have cut them in black but oh well) stacked them and glued them all together.
  • I glue the panel onto a piece of matching yellow cardstock, then onto some black and then onto an A2 white card base.
  • I glued the sentiment back into place and added 3 black gems.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

A beautiful save with the image and the idea to cut a sentiment and make it a gorgeous card Karen.

WOW - this is stunning Karen - what great use of the tissue box - I save them too, but none have been as spectacular as this one!

Fabulously colorful. I, too have saved these box images and may have to pull them out again and play. Thanks so much for sharing your project with us at C4G this round. Hope you join us on the next one. Cheers, Jolanda - DT
