For my son's birthday on Friday - I can't say how old he is - it is a secret between the two of us, lol
BG paper is from Papermania Rose Garden pad distressed with vintage photo, bundled sage & faded jeans.
I used the CB Happy Birthday folder on a piece of a paper tissue box, then did a bit of distressing with the same DI's as the BG paper plus some gold EP.
The corrugated card was packaging from my DD, I wiped white acrylic paint on it with my fingers, a nice mucky job. Finished it off with some more gold EP
The Spellbinders die shape came from this, below - the lining of a powdered milk carton.
So... I swiped some Cosmic Shimmer Mist on first and then dabbed on some alcohol ink with a sponge.
The idea to try this came from Anita's alcohol ink tutorial
These were also cut from the tissue box - embossed with gold EP and then the CB textile EF.
Ignore the round bit which is from a brochure,
I didn't use it for this card :)
So.... my re-purposed stuff is....corrugated card, a paper tissue box, powdered milk carton lining and some string.
Embellishments, jute mesh ribbon strip and the string that was wrapped around it from Funky Junky Linda's boutique
