Tissue Box Recycle


This is a card I made from a recycled tissue box panel. I liked all the circles and thought it might make a fun card, so I cut the panel using a Top Note die, adding a strip of color coordinating cardstock to the center. The sentiment stamp was borrowed and cut with a SU! die. The red brads were from my stash, and the blue striped background dsp is from recollections. The card base is navy blue.

I'm sharing this over at MFP Speedy Fox & Friends challenge #294 which is to make a "mostly blue" card. In 2016 the challenge will have a new name and schedule. Check here for details.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Wonderful recycling! I never would have guessed the "dp" was actually from a tissue box. It looks great.

You are so creative with your recycling! I often see patterns on boxes and what-not that I love but never think to use them on my cards. I will have to give this a try. I love the colors on this, and that saying is a hoot! Happy New Year, friend!

Great card Carol, but I must admit that I have gotten a bit discouraged with this challenge. I won 2 weeks in a row back during the 280's challenges, and never received my prizes. I sent a reminder email last week and heard nothing. I hope you have better luck.
