The new challenge at Joanna Sheen's Challenge Blog is recycle and this is what I have chosen to use:

1.  Packaging from detox tea bags.
2. Ribbon from a box of chocolates.
3. The inside of a padded envelope.

.... and this is what I did with it:

I took the bubble wrap from the inside of the envelope, inked it up and then transferred it to a piece of card that I then cut to size using a Spellbinder die. I turned the ribbon over to hide the branded printing to make the ribbon border and bow. As this is an anniversary card I cut two die cut hearts from the tea box and inked the edges. The romantic couple are of course Mr & Mrs Messy. The tulips are cut using Marianne dies and the tulip heads were a bit of paper I experimented with using shaving foam and inks swirled into it.


  1. What a fabulous card you have made by recycling. Just love the way you have printed with the bubble wrap! Michelle x

  2. WOW!!! Such amazing recycling. I really love the way you have created the colourful background using the bubble wrap and the hearts look so pretty. The image is adorable and the tulips are gorgeous too.
