GETTING CORRUGATED - DCM DARE

Getting Corrugated...
Hi all :) This week it is Jo here to set the dare...
I seem to have developed a little bit of a fixation with old cardboard boxes....! My dare this week is to use some corrugated card on your card - it could be corrugated craft card or an old box etc. taken to pieces :) You could make the card blank from it or die cut shapes etc...


I am so fed up with not being able to get good photos these dark winter nights, so I apologise now and will hopefully get better ones tomorrow if its sunny.

Dotty paper is DCWV, stripey paper is BG and card Bazzill. I punched the flowers from corrugated craft card and added eyelets with my silent setter, as my Cropadile is at work :-( The small flowers were threaded onto cord and all tied in through the centre eyelet on the large flower so they dangle. The small flowers at the side are embellished with tiny buttons and the 'hi' is hand cut. I finished off by inking edges and adding a bit of bling!

Not happy about not having all my stash and gadgets around me, but they are needed at school for a card making day next Friday with 180 Year 7 children which I have organised as part of National Enterprise Week. The children take their cards home to sell and proceeds go to Children in Need. Anyone available to help?
