Earth Day

Hello everyone!
Recently there was an Earth Day and I created a card using gorgeous stamp with the same name and a short tutorial on how to use it. I love to create eco friendly cards or just reuse something that we usually throw away. I will show you in this post what can be reused in your crafting projects.

This time I started with a piece of kraft paper and promotional booklet with mat paper in French. So, I tore papers to pieces and glued them to kraft cardstock in different directions.

Papers have to be overlapped.

Then I covered it with gesso. I used an old card for it. The layer of gesso shouldn't be too thick. When it dried I cut the excess edge and covered with glimmer mists.

I dried it with  a heat gun and used press to make it flat. Than I stamped the image with the Earth Day stamp and archival ink.

Then I rounded corners, add some flowers and adhered the element on a card with a foam scotch.

It is so easy and fun to create! But mine main idea is to reuse useless stuff and make it pretty.
Hope you like this idea!
