PTI April Recycled Swap

It was an interesting exercise to create a card for PTI's recycled swap that Jen is hosting for April. I had a bunch of red and black CS left over from a card class I had conducted a few months back and I was not sure what to do with them as they were kind of odd in size. This recycled swap was the perfect fit for them.

I used the Fiskars border punch on the red cs and layered the black and PP over it. I used all of my left over patterned paper and was very happy with the result. I used the new PTI set - Tags for Spring along with the flower from Boxes and Bags set. I even ended up using some left over buttons from another project, so this was truly recycled card for me.

Some stickles and the Sentiment from the handwritten notes completed the card. I did not have much of the Hemp cord. So, used it where I could.

I did not spend much time on design on this one. Just kept it simple. Also I had run out of both Kraft and PTI Stampers White Paper, so I ended up using some old pre scored and pre folded cards. I was like gosh these are so thin..I am totally spoilt by PTI now and anything else looks so flimsy. So, whoever gets this card, please do not feel bad about the card base. Next swap should be fine as I am now stocked up on Kraft and White CS from PTI.
