Recycled Dutch Fold Card

Hello Blog Friends - it is always lovely to know that you have visited - I hope that you find some inspiration while you are here!

Today's card has been created from a leftover kit from Card Design Class, a recycled birthday card and some gorgeous Want2Scrap bling.  It always gives me great pleasure to recycle and use the things that are lying around - it comes from having a resourceful Mum! LOL! 

I have embossed the patterned paper using the Grand Calibur Machine and Cabbage Roses Spellbinder® M-Bossabilities™ folder.  I love the fact that the M-Bossabilities are double sided - I have used side B for this card. IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink in Rich Cocoa has been used to sponge/distress around the edges of all pattered paper.

One of the Beautiful Bling Borders by Want2Scrap is added along the top of the card.

The scalloped rose panel is recycled from a recycled card and the pretty ribbon is from May Arts.  Below you can see a close up of the gorgeous embossing and bling.  Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on this card.
