Vintage Book Page

Those who know me, know that I am all about recycling. We have learned how to use dryer sheets on cards and fabric to wrap gifts. Today I'm posting a card that I made using an old book page. Please don't ruin any books. Your local library will have pages that were torn from a book they can't find, and they will give them to you. You can use an old newspapers page too. There are several websites that will teach you how to stamp on them. Enjoy.
 Card 'recipe'
Paper: red and black cardstock, old book page
Tools: Cutting/ embossing machine (Bigkick), corner punch, computer and printer, precision scissors and adhesive.
Stamps: clear flowers
Ink: red
Embellishments: vanilla and red ribbons, black lace, black die-cut and white oval die-cut (Framelits), red gemstones and red 3-D roses stickers.
Another idea for this card is to change the roses sticker for a graduation cap or a diploma, change the sentiment phrase for a 'Congratulations', and print a graduation message inside. Voila!!! You have a graduation card now.

Thank you for stopping by.
