I thought since today is Earth day I would show you some cards I made using recycled items.For my first card I used the clear plastic that your stickers comes on with blue alcohol ink from Ranger. I save my pieces to use on future projects. The background stamp is by Hero Arts, boom box by Imaginsce, with the headphones by Stampibilities. The notes are stickers from The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby and the Dad stickers are by Creative Memories. I use Making Memories eyelets on the corners. I think eyelets are a manly item. The ink I used on this card is by Stampin Up (white) and Hero Arts (black). The headphones were cut out and the boom box was cut out using a Spellbinders die.
My second card is very CAS but I like it. I used a Monster tab from a can as my embellishment. I don't usually use ribbon on my manly cards but sometimes you have to break the rules. The stamp and ink are by Hero Arts. I then used Offray ribbon across the top and bottom. The pop tab is up on foam adhesive with the ribbon wrapped around it. I tried to hide the ribbon underneath the lower part of the tab. It took some messing with but I finally got it to look like I wanted it to. I love the splash of green for this card and my husband loved how simple it was.
