Recycled Packaging & Using Up Stash

One thing I love about Prima products is the beautiful packaging it comes in, and I always keep the backing card from their flowers. This one was literally just stuck onto the card base as is. It has a lovely pearl finish on it and the greenish blue colour has a real mermaid vibe about it. It doesn't take ink too well, so the sentiment is a little faded, but it doesn't rub off or anything. I added some die cut flowers from PTI's The Sweet Life and there you have it. I really like the colours of this card. I wish I could buy paper like this, it takes the hard work out of making cards lol.

This was another quick card. My aunt ambushed me with an order for 5 cards, which were needed right away. (Is it just my family that does this?) I made this felt embellishment months ago and promptly forgot about it. I added a strip of PTI's heart border underneath the flower and stuck a tiny tag with it. All of these bits and pieces had been pre-made, stamped and cut ages ago, so on they went in no time at all. 
Thanks for looking!


  1. Great cards! I especially love the first one-- those roses are perfect!

    1. Thanks Leigh. They really are the perfect flowers. I think the detail on them can make the simplest card pop!
