Getting Corrugated...

Hi all :) My turn to set this week's 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...

When you've finished your cardboard card creations, leave a comment with a link to your blog post on the DCM blog and we'll come and see. You can also take part even if you dont have a blog by emailing a photo or scan to daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk and we'll add it to our gallery. The design team, as always have a fantastic array of cards to get the inspiration flowing....

I used this corrugated cupholder from Starbucks...

and made this...


The cup holder actually says that it is made from recycled 'fiber' - I presume they mean fibres... so it is now doubly recycled :)
I punched circles from the snowflake bits and attached them with brads and punched stars from the reverse.
I also used...
Scenic Route Papers
A Paperchase Monster
Inking
Doodling
and Poundland bargainarific Gems

TFL :)

Love this card so much Jo - the snow monster is fab. What a great idea to recycle the cup holder - must go for a coffee just to get one of those!

Another fabulous monster!
You pushed me out of my comfort zone & made me use horrid corrugated card!! I need a nice mug of chocolate every hour now to calm the shock!!

Fab Santa in PI this month but I got quite confused when they pictured him on the cover in one colour & inside another! He looks great both but I do love the silver/blue version
