Recycle it

I love the effect of kraft card and so my supplies seem very special to me. This is why, when stamping goes a little awry, I turn over the card and use the other side, as happened here. There was a tiny gap in the line around the label image and so I turned over the card to use the other side before die-cutting it. I don't suppose too many recipients disassemble their cards to find that there is sometimes apparently  random stamping on the back of some elements.
Here Stampin' Up images have been embossed with white detail embossing powder and the sentiment is from a Cuttlebug die.
It's for the Paper Players  recycle challenge and it looks as though I'm just getting in under the wire.


  1. I must admit, at times I do the same. Love this card.

  2. What a gorgeous card.

  3. Love the white embossing on the kraft Chrissie, great combo:) Heavens I hope no one ever deconstructs my cards, there's allsorts lurking at the back! Having said that, my sister Karen probably does to find out how I've made it!

  4. Wonderfully simple card. It is fabulous.

  5. A lovely card - the kraft looks great. I hope no-one takes my cards apart - they would see all sorts!

  6. What a beautiful card! I love the CAS look of white on kraft, and it really shows off the gorgeous details on the stamped leaves. Thanks for joining us at the Paper Players this week!

  7. I love the leaf stamp! I only discovered kraft card when I started blogging and just got my first pack. I'm glad I'm not the only one to re-uses :-) I often make mistakes so it's a case of cutting down/turning over or throwing in the 're-use- drawer for another day.

  8. This is stunning! I HOPE people don't disassemble my's hard to tell what they might find on the other side, LOL! Awesome recyle--thanks for playing with the Paper Players this week!

  9. Love the stunning white fronds on the bkgd Chrissie...white on Kraft always knocks my socks off!!!
    I've been known to use the back of mistakes on cards too, we have to embrace the recycling bug in crafting too :0)
