July 8th 2011

I have an entire ream of recycled card stock that I have been utilizing. This card is just layering paper with the help of the 3m foam tape to lift the top layer and create depth. This was a quick and simple card but I really enjoy using the paper in this way.

This card although sideways s a drawing of a tree with a wire embellishment. Not every day is a winner and I kept this one however I'm not proud of it.

I was still on my same paper kick but for this card I decided on a maze motif and colored it in with a felt tip pin. I really enjoyed making the stark lines and geometric design.

On the 5th I once again used the recycled paper and created this card simply with a mechanical pencil and a ruler one line at a time. I enjoy its simplicity.

On the 4th I created a notebook like card. There are several sheets of tissue paper adhered at the corner where the black paper is at. This card can be fluffed to make the sheets poof out more. Its not my favorite but much better in person.

This photograph is somewhat hard to distinguish but the card is made using paper ribbon to create a dimensional flower like shape. I simply folded tucked and glued a section of a time with hot glue.

I had purchased small wooden variety pack for another project so I combined them with my 3m foam tape and a piece of recycled paper to created this layered card. Another architectural piece that builds up and out from its original confines.

I was gingko inspired during this card. I used a black card and a gingko leaf template to cut white tissue paper leaf shapes and glued them down. After it was done I liked the template so much I attached it to the edge. I enjoyed how the paper overlapping created different hues.

I made several pieces in college using stitch witchery to bond fabric to other fabrics. For this card I added the bonding agent, cut fabric and simply iron bonded it to a card backing. I knew there was a reason I was holding onto all those silly little scraps. All of this fabric is also hand dyed.

This card was created using non thermal lamination paper with washers and jewelry metal rings sealed in between. This card was impossible to date, sign and very difficult to even photograph but I still enjoyed making it.
