An Oldie for Friday!

Well it's still just about Friday so I'm joining in with Erika on her Snappy Crafts blog.

 I went to a workshop in the village today from 10.00 till 4.00 so that's my reason for being late this week.

Erika invites us to join in each Friday,  just for fun, with an old craft project.


My card was made several years ago.  I can't remember what the stamp is but it's from a set of clear bird stamps in a similar style.

I do remember that the background paper was recycled from the inside of a box of chocolates and how nice the paper smelt at the time - yum!

I embossed it several times with an embossing folder, matching up the dots.  Then just did a little colouring and added a bit of gold gel pen and shading  to the bird feeder.

I hand pierced around the edge of the white matt.

I hope you enjoy your weekend.

I love your card with the recycled chocolate paper - a good excuse to buy chocolates to see what the paper inside is like.

What a great cardinal card. I'll bet that background was devine smelling back in the day. It's quite fancy I'll bet those were some upscale chocolates.

I think this is a delightful card, and the fact that it's a wrapper from a box of chocolates, makes me just smile. I love it when us crafty gals, get all clever in our recycling efforts.. Makes it so much fun. Great job.
