Halloween Upcycled Card

I am a firm supporter of recycling. Whether that means donating items we don’t use anymore, recycling plastics and such or up-cycling objects into something new. For this Halloween card I used the back of a factory made birthday card I received last month. The color of the card inspired me to create the following Halloween card.

I used my skull and crossbones die to cut out my image from felt. The texture reminded me of the flocked cards and stickers I loved so much as a kid. I used Hero Arts, Clings Bat Background stamp with Versamark and dark blue embossing powder to create the background. The banner is from Recollections and I heat embossed it in green. I added the red gems for the eyes to give the skull a little more presence. Now the skull reminds me of something out of an Indiana Jones movie.

  The orange Ombre of the up-cycled card really did provide a great backdrop for my card and I saved it from a landfill!

 I am entering this card for the CAS-ual Fridays CRC69: Embossing challenge.

Happy Stamping,
