Corrosive Challenge #100 – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

January 23, 2011 at 12:11 pm 2 comments

Happy 100th Janet! This week’s Corrosive Challenge is to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. I think this is a great challenge!! I just happened to have a brown paper bag with a really neat pattern on it. I kept this bag from October when my cousin and I went to visit my dad in Pennsylvania and took a day-trip to Falling Water and Seven Springs Resort. We stopped along the way at a cute store that had really beautiful furniture made by Amish in the area and other home-related items. I picked up a small item – lucky for me! I cut the bag to make the background paper. I made two cards for the challenge today:

My son and my brother have their birthdays a day apart and I made these for them.

Here are the ingredients for the cards:

Card Stock – 110 lb. white, basic black, soft suede
Ink – Momento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Ink in Antique Linen
Stamps – Spellbinders Friendly stamps from StampingScrapping
Accessories – brads

Have a great day, everyone! Thanks for having a look!

    Love the card! I have been trying to come up with cards for men with just the right feel but not too sports oriented. I will add this to my list of favorites. I made something similar to this with old book pages. Glad to see I am keeping up with what is current. Keep the masculine ideas coming. I custom make cards for to professional men – it is difficult to come up with 12 different designs every couple of months.
