One of the challenges as part of the Earth Day celebrations over at the Justjohanna forum was to re-use a security envelope to make a card, tag, etc. Heather Grow set the challenge and you can see her example here.
Here is my take on the challenge:
The pink background paper is made from the security envelope paper - I have coloured it with Tim Holtz distress ink (worn lipstick) and then I ran it through my cuttle bug. I went over the embossing with Walnut Stain distress ink to highlight the pattern.
For the flower section, I left the security envelope blue, and just stamped the Autumn Leaves stamp directly onto it with black ink. I then coloured in the different parts with art markers. I mounted it onto cardstock, then mounted it onto the card.
I also stamped the Heidi Grace "Just for you" sentiment onto the security paper, and mounted it on top of the flower with double sided foam mounting tape.
Keeping with the Earth Day theme, all the cardstock I used was from my scraps bin! :)
Thanks for looking!
