Thats our challenge at Emma's "Throwback Thursday". Cardstock, pattern paper, scissors, glue & stamps is all we can use. I hope card board counts???
Here are three cards I made today using the packaging from embossing folders I bought this week. These images were on the back , so I cut them out thinking I'll use them somehow one day! With the challenge this week being No Cricut I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to see what I could do with them.

The 3 cards are 51/2 in square, I added pattern paper, lace, buttons, ribbon etc.
The scallop border on the pink one is from a Martha Stewart Punch.

I love using paper doily's! There is a little glitter on all the images.

How cool are these embossing folders.......they are from Craft concepts.

There is always a use for everything..........Hope you like my "Recycle Cards"

Enjoy your weekend



  1. These all look fantasic (of course my favourite is the pink). I love your use of all the different elements and dimensions - and I really love the cute buttons.

  2. Lovely Tracey. You use the doilies so well,,i hope Emma never has a challenge asking us to use doilies as i can never seem to use them at all.The paper i used on my cards is from an 8x8 pack of October Afternoon-Fly A Kite. Expect to see a lot more as its my current favourite.

  3. Great idea! I wouls have never thought to save the packaging to use for cards. TFS!

  4. WOW Tracy! your cards are just AMAZING my friend!! You did an AWESOME job w/the callenge!
    Gypsy Hugs,

  5. OH I LOVE these. But the first one is my favorite. Super cute and I love that color combo.

  6. I love all three of these cards... you did an amazing job..especially since you couldn't use your cricut... that is a hard task!!

    I love love harts too... by daughter doesn't like them at all.. Maybe to be different than her mom.


  7. Wow! Not one, but three great cards.

  8. How clever to use the packaging!! Your cards look amazing! I love those folders too. I've not seen them before.
