Junk mail card

I think it is safe to show this card now. I entered it for a competition in a magazine where you had to use junk mail to make a card. I started off with a quilled design, my first go at quilling but I ran out of steam and it didn't go anywhere.
Then I had some brilliant junk mail in the form of a chipboard leaflet that I die cut into the red and white flowers, I mounted them on an inside out brown envelope which was double, attached wire stems, and gem centres. The vase is bubble wrap coloured red with peel off pens, and with a frame cut from end of year accounts booklet. I used peel off waste for the greeting that I coloured in with brush markers.

Inside the card I stamped on the inside of envelopes and stamped with an image of the earth with children holding hands round the edge, two sentiments, one says "Save the Earth, its the only planet with chocolate" and "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" which is a Debbie Moore stamp.

As it is some months since the closing date and I haven't seen anything or heard anything I guess it didn't get anywhere!

  1. Well, I think that that's really clever. At last something good from junk mail.
