Daring Card Makers - Recycle

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme for the week is

Recycle

I tend to keep a lot of the shop bought cards that are sent to us as I know I can recycle and reuse them some day!  Here I've used two cards to cut the X Cut stars and all the letters.  I had to be creative with how I cut some of the words and letters due to the patterns!

The large letter dies are unbranded and I've added glossy accents to the top.  The word happy is also unbranded and I've cut it twice for a shadow effect.




I've also used some offcuts of card for the base - I keep all my scraps as you never know when you'll need them!  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

As You Like It:  Dies or Stencils (I have a lot of dies and they are so easy to use)
Watercooler Wednesday:  Masculine
Cardz 4 Guyz:  To Die For
Incy Wincy:  Men and Boys

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 180 - Anything Goes

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme, as always is

Anything Goes

I've made two little gift boxes using my Sizzix die and two sheets of A4 kraft card.  The bands slide off and are off cuts I found in my stash (both are Funky Hand) although I had to piece them together as the strips were not long enough!


The baubles are left over from 2017 gift decorating and are from Primark (30 for £2) and I choose the papers to match the baubles.  Wooden snowflakes and large gems are also from my stash.  Good luck with the challenge!
