Peace on EARTH DAY!

This is one of my favorite Jingle Belles challenges, we've celebrated Earth Day each year since 2011, by making holiday cards that include a re-cycled, re-used or up-cycled ingredient! It's easier than you might think: upcycle a pretty tissue box, reuse those beautiful old xmas cards you couldn't bear to toss, recycle a piece of plastic packaging as the window in a shaker card... the possibilities are almost endless. Here are my "ingredients":

The beautiful backers from Prima flowers and Little Birdie chipboard, some old paint chips and (not pictured) another piece of white on white cardstock that was from... shoelaces?? (it was pretty, so I saved it, lol!) and some clear plastic from a salad bar container that I used for the shaker window in my card, which looks like this:

Ok, so... I think you can see where each element ended up, right? The deer is diecut from the woodgrain packaging; the trees from the paint chips. The Prima ledger papery piece is the inside of the shaker and the white unknown packaging is the larger snowflake. I've also got one or two new(ish) things: Simple Stories woodgrain and snowflake paper, Best Creation Glitter cardstock and some brand new Eyelet Outlet Snowflake Sequins inside the shaker!

Jump over to Jingle Belles and see Stephanie's awesome card (trust me, it's a goodie!) then start raiding the recycling, the trash and that box of "too-pretty-to-toss-out" things to make your own creation! ♥
