Default Gift teabags

I've recently found out that caffeine hates me but was left with teabags and rather than throw them out I decided to make paper envelopes for them, big enough to hold 2 teabags and gift them as a little extra in thankyou cards. Writing the tea type on the flap.

Default appliqué card

I'd read some time ago about appliqué on cards, so I thought I would give it a go. You need to iron on interfacing onto the material then cut the shapes, I sewed the wing onto the chick first then sewed it to the card, the eggs were to small so i just glued them on. This works best on tri-fold cards, I think for ordinary cards you should just stitch everything first then glue on to give the illusion that it is sewn on. Finally add the finishing touches by drawing on the extras, so that was the easter card finished.
Then I made a Bithday card, the dress topper was made from a template found on google images, the girl was a drawing I picked up a while ago, I just changed it a bit and painted it, for the writing I copied one of my fonts lightly in pencil then went over it in pen.

Great cards! I love, love, love, cards made by recycling/upcycling. Funny, I was just looking at some fabric-on-card cards yesterday and wanted to have a go. You've whetted my appetite now!

Some more fabric styled cards, and a real man card for that biker in the family.

Default Paint charts repurpose

Had a pile of paint charts and decided to do a sort of mosaic on card. Settled for a bird, since I wanted to start off slow and easy. But it can lead to a whole lot of complicated designs too.

Default REcycled Cards

I've had a mini spate of card making, mostly making them for a charity to raise funds.
This is old cards to new ones, funnily enough nearly all were Christmas cards! I'll be keeping a couple of these for myself. Some of the toppers are from Crackers, I think I had planned to make tags from them a long, long time ago.

Nice cards Gormal. I haven't been crafting for a long time. Must get back to recycling my Christmas cards again.

I've had a splurge!! I've so many 'bits' saved in a box that have to be used up. And I've a rescue dog, so am out walking daily, which has led to the resurrection of my pressed flower cards.
My brother in law had an accident and have made this one from some of the bits, to put a smile on his face
