Packaging Rose

Gingersnap Creations     GC106:Spicy Supply Challenge-Packaging Materials
Card Patterns     Sketch 121

The Gingersnappers almost had me stumped on this one. I don't spend a lot of time shopping at the Mall and that's what this month's theme is about. But, let's see--shopping--packaging materials--well, that led me to thinking about my on line shopping, so off to the garage to look in saved empty boxes.
I dug out some brown packing paper, bubble wrap, the edge of a torn up box, some twine, voici (see here), a pretty card after all.
I didn't even count how many layers I cut out with the Tattered Florals die, just kind of fingered what felt right. I inked up the bubble wrap and stamped it on Naturals Vanilla card stock, ruffed up all the edges, even the 1" circles and put the whole thing together. Easy Peasy--almost a 10 min. card.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥

GREAT card. I will be looking at my recycle box more carefully before it goes to the curb. Great use of "stuff". I will have to CASE this! Love it.
