I have no idea how this happened, but my oldest is turning 16 tomorrow!! 16 is a big deal, so I wanted to create a fun, interactive card, and this is what I came up with: a fun 3-D pirate-themed box card.

I decided to recycle some of the Christmas cards I received this year. The present was recycled from one of those cards. I found some red dotted ribbon in my bits and pieces stash and then found some matching patterned paper scraps to go with the color scheme. The three snowflakes were part of a bunch of crafty items I bought at a yard sale a couple years ago. They were already punched and I adhered two together to create each element, to give a little depth and stability.
A couple weeks ago, one of my cats knocked over my bits and pieces stash (in their defense it was quite precarious!). So, I took a little time to organize it and look through the different bits and pieces I had. Most of the elements on this card were in the stash, so it was a very quick and easy card to create. The patterned papers, sentiment and matching leaf sprigs have been there for several years. I received it in an order I received from Verve, probably just as they were closing up shop. I colored the little sprigs and fussy cut the two that are not part of the sentiment. Then I pulled the already stamped flower out of the pile thinking it worked quite perfectly! I just needed some pink card stock and pearls and a bit of olive organza ribbon to finish it off. I love quick and easy!

This year I decided to recycle some of the Christmas cards we received. One had three presents on the front: one had a snowflake on it, but the other two were rather generic. So, I decided to use this one for a quick and easy masculine birthday card. The triangular patterned paper piece was left over from a card I had just finished (I only had to trim off the very point as it was about 1/2 in too long). I knew just the stamp set to use to create a large, bold sentiment. I stamped it in red to add a little bit more color to the card and then I finished everything off with some blue enamel dots. So fun and easy!
