Altered Cards using recycled covers

My Bubbly Funk projects this week are recycled cards...not last years christmas cards but recycled covers!!

I am sorry Spice Girls but you had to go in order for me to get the CD case!! (My photos are in the wrong order but I can't copy and paste and the moment so here is the inside first..sorry for the poor colour quality..again!!)

The outside of the case is covered with the most beautiful Fancy Pants shaped glittered acetate sheet from the Bubbly Funk shop. This can be purchased as an add-on to the kit.

It's kind of hard to show but in real life it's translucent and packed with depth and texture and bling. A great way to make an alternative card for your alter(ers) out there!

I made some little Organza petals with a new technique that I will share on a layout next week.

This chunky card uses a recyled notebook cover but you could just as easily make it with a bind-it-all.
A little stamping to make the snowflakes and the saying and a few layers, plus a couple of the ATC sized cards from the kit and that's it. Not a lot of work for another effective textured card.

I still feel like a cheat when I call them cards though....maybe it's because I still don't have a clue about sizes and envelopes and try my hardest to avoid those regimented!!
Love and Spice Girls Re-cycled!!

Beautiful cards Ruth.

Thanks for the comment about my wreath. My ring is polystyrene and i got it from a flower stall. But i have found more on Ebay and have some on order. They were cheap, £1.25 each. If they are ok i will post the guys details for you. I think they are called half rings because the backs are flat.
