Simple with a bit of recycling

Being a crafter I see endless possibilities in recycling packaging that my crafty goodies are packed in. That being said,  I have made the flower on my simple card using the plastic which a cricut cartridge came in.

I punched out three 3" daisies using a woodware punch and three small dasies with a smaller punch. Then coloured the big daisies with blue alcohol ink and the small with yellow.. Slowly heated each daisy shape with my heat gun and then moulded into shape and then layed them up using 3d glue.

Close up isin't very good,  my old camera didn't want to play ball !! 

I embossed the "With Love" onto a piece of  whitewash colourcore and sanded back, then reversed the rest of the colourcore to use as my yellow bachground.. The swirls were cut using a marianne die which I love.

Oh My word I love how you reused the packaging. BRILLIANT! I as well hate wasting stuff and love finding uses for things. But I never thought of the packaging...Thanks for the inspiration.
Thanks for playing along with our No Stamps allowed challenge. Hope to see your craftiness in future challenges.
