Autumn Greeting Card

I made two versions of this card, the other one is identical but uses green card instead of beige. Both sets of card come from reused office stationery, the white handmade paper comes from a second-hand cardmaking kit from a local charity shop, the leaf comes from second hand pot pourri (and smells of peaches!) and the foil is from a bar of Divine fairtrade chocolate.

Well, that makes you our eco-warrior of the week, I think. Great work!

Great card! I haven't seen Divine on this side of the pond, but will look for it.

Great use of the potpourri and chocolate bar wrapper. Are you placing these loose projects into a journal? Hope all is well.

You cannot get much more recycled than that Juliet. Well done!

Hi Juliet

that makes for a great card...

be careful if you send it overseas though...recently I had cards sent from Israel, taken by customs because of dried flowers that were present...they asked if I wanted to pay a collossal amount to have it fumigated... but did send a photo copy to me which was nice of them...

Happy days

I love the idea of reusing materials to make crafts. I can't stand to waste anything.
