3 new "green" cards...

I was about to throw away a Coke case and I realized that I could be using some of the cardboard on it for my cards. Then I came across a challenge on the "Our Creative Corner" blog to use recycled items- how perfectwas that? I pulled out my circle and scallop punches and went to town. I then tested them out by creating 3 3x3 cards with a "green theme". I am going to send these to a very green and Earth-conscious woman that I met online a few years ago and who I think is INCREDIBLE!! I hope she enjoys them!




I used the Coke box paper for my circles and Michael's stamp for the center. I used some "wood grain" scraps to create the BG paper and I used some florescent cardstock that I have been trying to use up (and now I'm starting to like it! LOL)

Way to recycle, very noble of you. I wish more people would recycle. Too many people are too lazy. When I heard that 37% of people forget to brush their teeth on every average morning, I truly understood about our recycling situation.
