Instant Card Toppers

Hi Susan !

Here's a set of card toppers I made especially for this challenge.

I've stuck to my recycling theme, but focused on the image being hassle-free, Zero wastage & 'instant'.

I've used the back of visiting cards for the project. For the main images, I've used the 'lucky star' Origami paper (double-sided - red & pink), quilling strips, crinkle-roller, & a floral punch.

The flowers were punched along the border of the paper; thus giving me free flowers as well as a stenciled design that was used on the other 2 cards. Absolutely No Wastage :-)

Incidentally, these card toppers can also be used as gift tags. The name is already on the back of the visiting card & a short message, if required, can be written on the blank space of the card.

I've titled my cards under "Spring" :
1. Trellis
2. Bouquet
3. Love in Spring

These are not as creative as the ones you & your contributors have displayed, but I enjoyed making them - all of 10 minutes ;-))


Meenakshi, your are indeed creative! Your toppers look wonderful and I am glad to have them as an entry into the Creative Challenge draw. It is a real bonus that you not only recycled but made them in such a short period of time. And they are so versatile! I like the idea of using them as gift tags :)

I am giving you another chance to win the little RAK I have in mind to give to one of the entrants in a few day's time.

Happy crafting!
