Shaker Card.

This is a card for another swap that I do every month which goes to Australia. This is one of the cards
which I made for the February swap that I have never shown.  The theme for this challenge was to 
recycle something  from your trash can. I joked that I was going to send my partner a card with fish bones on it so she was relieved to see I had made a shaker card using one of The Docs trusty custard tart boxes instead.!  I used a Crafts-Too embossing folder with a rose design on it to further enhance the card that I had cut from the box.  The roses were made from some of the hand made paper that I had made in a local craft club I go to.  It has all been used up now.  The shaker element is white opaque sequins that i had a packet of in my stash.  Card base was made from blue card stock.

I'm still  in two minds about using fish bones on a card so watch this space is all  I can say!

  4. Ha ha ha!! :D It would be possible make a card with recycled fish bones, but it would be better send it inside a refrigerated envelope... LOL :D :D
    I think that the trusty custard tart cardstock is really better :D and WOW!... I'm just in love with your shaker! Fabulous colours and the embossed layer is a clever idea, thanks for the great inspiration! Your handmade roses with the handmade paper are a truly delight, just amazing! Love them!

  13. I wouldn't be surprised to see you using fish bones. How about an new line in greeting cards for cats? Anyway no-one would know this was recycled. The roses are very pretty and add a special touch.

  14. I think this is my favorite of all your cards. It is just stunning. I love the way you use all things and recycle on your cards. Things in my trash can would not be suitable for cards or anything else for that matter!

  23. gorgeous custard box, Mrs A!
    ... mm fish bones well doesn't do to send them to Oz as customs will confiscate them at the x-ray point of mail and you wont see them happened to something of mine.. not fish bones but plant matter.. our customs are very strict.
    Thanks so much for the inspiration.
