The 'Eyes' Have It

Hello friends, I hope you are all well and enjoying the week before Christmas - I know it can be busy and that can distract us from the reason we have Christmas in the first place.  I sincerely hope you some time to relax and remember,

My DH and I had to get new glasses and I could not bring myself to throw away the bag - how cool is it!!  It had not been in the door for long and I had recycled it into two cards - and thankfully had the computer generated sentiments already printed out.

Not too much to explain here - my card base and paper were cut/embossed using the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and  the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform    The paper has been adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. 

The first sentiment has been adhered to a tag from the Spellbinders Die Ribbon Banners - love this one.  The Die has been used as a stencil, sponging inside the Die using Imagine Crafts Memento Ink in Angel Pink.

The second sentiment has been layered onto white card stock and adhere to the lower portion of the card using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Runner.  It is as easy as that!

These cards are linked to the following challenges:
Great Impressions - Anything Goes

  2. What awesome recycling Linda!! Mind you the cost of specs are such that you have to make the most of everything, packaging included!!
