Recycled too ...

We are now half way though the year!  It's hard to believe that tomorrow we start the seventh month of 2014 - where has the year disappeared to?  I've even started thinking about Christmas cards.  I know that many create Christmas cards all year round but I find it difficult to be inspired when the sun is shining and the doors are open.  However, I have been trying out an idea that I might use this year - when I'm happy with it I'll share it and see what you all think.

Less chat, more action!  Here is the card I would like to share tonight:

This week's challenge at "Less is More" is to 'Use a recycled item!' - this card combines a recycled design (not sure this is what the Less is More Designers intended!!) along with a piece of a coca cola can!  I heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of the can - I wasn't totally convinced the technique would work but it has although there is some embossing powder where it shouldn't be.  I then used an embossing folder to add texture to the metal.  I had to stick the metal onto a piece of black card stock to stop it from curling!

I used:
Kaisercraft Clear Stamps - Way of Life
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Stampin Up - Off the Grid and Gorgeous Grunge
