Wonderful challenge! Most every card I make has something recycled on it (or under it - like cereal boxes). As my DH will tell you, I tend to save a lot of stuff for later use. On this one, the usual cereal box cardboard is under the flower (for lift and stability) and also the buttons are recycled. I have a bunch of them that I took off of something a long time ago.
All images are Innovative Stamp Creations. I stamped the poppy twice, colored both w/ markers, cut one complete poppy and a portion of the flower petals and one leaf from the second. The partial flower was attached under the main flower and I attached it to a large background stamped with the Ledger image.
The sentiment was die cut using a tag die and I added some little red banner die cuts and the recycled buttons. I used a border punch for the red layer and the finished card measures 4.25 x 5.50.
Thanks so much for looking! Close ups of this new release are on my blog: The Write Stuff
