Recycling My Way! TECC76

Hi :-)

I’ve had this idea in my head for awhile now, so for this card I decided to try it out…recycling that pair of blue jeans:

Denim flower TECC76 (Large)

I started by running fusible webbing through my Cuttlebug with SU!’s clear flower die.  Then I ironed the cut flower to the back side of a piece of denim (I cut some denim bibs into squares).  Next I cut out the denim flower, by hand, about 1/4 inch larger than the ironed-on flower.  Once the flower was cut, I used my Janome sewing machine to zig-zag around the petals.  I wanted the edges to be frayed, so I ran it through the laundry with my load of jeans.  Once it was dried, I ironed it flat, cut off the wild threads and there it was…amazing :-)   For the center, I punched out a Riding Hood Red circle and placed it under the large brad I made with my new i-top tool (which is awesome…check it out!).  To add final touches, I distressed the edges of the card to kinda match the frayed flower petals (hard to see in this picture).

The sketch is TECC76


Have a great weekend.  Thanks for looking!

  1. Well, I didn’t think it was possible to top all of my other favorite cards that you have made. But you did. I LOVE the denim. You are so clever! This is my absolute favorite card that you have made. Excellent!
