Paper Players and the sketch challenge at the Sweetest Thing. I sent the card to my son, Nicholas, who leaves for Mendoza, Argentina on the 11th of this month. You're thinkin' "a flower on a card for a guy?" Yup, that's right a flower but that is okay because it is made from a Coke a Cola can. He, like me, loves Coke so it's all good. I even used packing paper to make an envelope. Would you believe it cost me $1.22 to mail?
So, not only is the Coke recycled and used on my card, but so is the scallop circle. It was cut from a scrap of plastic paper divider sheet. In my search of looking for recycled goodies to use on my card, I came across a single piece of this retired Stampin' Up! Halloween designer series paper. I don't even remember the name of the pack, but I know I used lots of it.
The other printed designer papers come from the In-Color Paper Pack which is a Hostess Level One gift. The card base measures 5 1/4" square and is Basic Black cardstock. I also used some scraps of Whisper White and Real Red cardstock for the greeting. Speaking of the greeting it comes from the stamp set in the IBC called Word Play. The awesome flower accent was cut from the Flower Daisies #2 Bigz Die. I used just a few embellishments to finish the card: Basic Rhinestones, Neutrals Buttons, and Clear Rhinestone Brads.
