Oldie Moldie Monday
This is a card made from recycled paper. I used covers from commencement programs. Since I have started collecting the unused or discarded programs, we have gone through the colors of grey, purple and now they are white. Yeah - it was really hard to make that many purple cards.
This is a retirement card for a professor at our university. I thought it was very appropriate to use the commencement program covers for her card. The cardbase is a program cut to size. I cut purple to use as a mat, cut the border and then cut 2 different sizes of shaped Spellbinders for the flower. I wet the flower layers and then crinkled them up - they have such a nice shape now. Luckily I am not mailing this card - it will be hand delivered. The sentiment is from SRM Stickers.
Come back tomorrow to see another retirement card - where I got artsy fartsy.
