Card rosa e verde - riciclo avanzi


Questa è la seconda card che ho fatto ieri con alcuni degli avanzi sul mio tavolo.
Ho impiegato meno tempo a fare la card che a scrivere il post...  Scaricare le foto, ridimensionarle, scrivere il post, linkare i challenge... Ci metto sempre tantissimo tempo!!! :(
La card è molto semplice, ma mi piace.
Ho usato: due strisce di carta patterned avanzata da altri lavori, a cui ho distressato i bordi;
due bordi decorativi tagliati con Victoria Lace brand Signature Dies -Johanna Sheen- da un pezzo di cartoncino banco rimasto da altri lavori (li ho colorati con i Distress Inks Spun Sugar e Dried Marigold + Vitage Photo);
un pezzo di un bordo decorativo (Floral Melody Square Overlay - Die'sire Create a Card) che era finito nella scatola degli avanzi perchè era stato tagliato male;
due cuori tagliati con la Big Shot da cartone pesante di riciclo (fustella Sizzix Scallop Heart), come quello che avete visto nella card precedente.
Ho unito i due cuori di cartone per dare ancora più spessore e simulare un effetto "cornice di legno"; ho sfumato i bordi con il DI Vintage Photo e sotto ci ho incollato un cuore che tempo fa avevo ritagliato da una vecchia cartolina commerciale. Il cuore ha un pattern di rose e la scritta "Auguri" (Best Wishes).
La base della card è un cartoncino verde piegato a metà, che ha lo stesso verde della striscia disegnata dentro al cuore (che fortuna!)  :)

Bene, ho tolto di mezzo ancora qualche avanzo. La scatola comunque trabocca ancora...  
Con questo progetto vorrei partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

Oh Alice, such an enchanting card! I love the bold heart as a focal point and the soft colors - such a dainty and romantic card! Last night we see Andrea Bocelli (yes, we thank your Italy for this!) and it was all about romance ~ just like your beautiful card! Big hugs, dear!

What a wonderful project here with that wooden-looking heart! I love the white horizontal border with the pretty rose papers within the heart and those decorative borders on the top and bottom look wonderful! Beautiful card as always and congrats on using more bits and bobs from your box! The gremlins keep filling mine up again when I sleep, I swear!

Debra K. ha detto...

A wonderful card made from your leftovers! The heart really looks wooden, you're so clever, and the decorative die cuts are so pretty. I can imagine that your box is still full as you recycle so much and beautifully so too. Debra x

Kelly Griglione ha detto...

Aww, such a delicate and pretty card! Hard to believe it was made from scraps! So glad you were able to create another card for the Use Your Scraps Challenge!

Your card is so pretty Alice, just perfect for a Valentine card, beautifully designed, Kate x

Pamellia Johnson ha detto...

Stunning!! I really love this heart shape you have used, it's so pretty and makes a wonderful focal piece! Fabulous background, you can't go wrong with butterflies! Your fancy die cut borders are exquisite and the intricate belly band is just the thing to bring the eye to the middle! Another divine creation!

It's been a pretty busy time around here as I work to get everything started for my first season working with baby squirrels! On one hand, I am so excited to be a part of something so special and important. On the other hand, I'm so worried about all the things that can go wrong. These helpless little babies who have lost their Mom, are gonna be relying on me to care for them...Yikes, no pressure! Hope all is well in your corner of the world. sending hugs :)

Thank you for sharing your lovely crafting for Penny’s challenge 366 – hope to see you again soon – Hazel DT x

My scrap boxes (yes, I have several) will never be emptied but it feels good to get some used. Sometimes I use a lot, other times nothing, like now when I’m more into stencilling and stamping. But that goes in waves. Your simple designs are more detailed than my fussy ones. I like how different we are and can pick inspiration from each other even when styles are different. Your card is a beauty.

KT Fit Kitty ha detto...

Hello, my sweet friend! I am so happy to see that you made another card! I LOVE heart-themed cards - this is so pretty! I also love seeing that you used more of your scraps. They certainly accumulate, don't they?! I really like your fancy border die-cuts and, of course, that gorgeous wooden heart. Pink and green is one of my favourite colour combos! Lovely work, Alice!

Sylvia ha detto...

MaryH ha detto...

You are rocking the UFO/recycle box once again. This is so very pretty, and your heart did indeed look like a wooden embellie. It is perfect with the delicate lacey strips you've added and the color combo is just perfect for a romantic card. It's always such fun to read where the supplies for your project are found! TFS & Hugs
