Yoghurt Pot Card!

Morning Everyone!

A very quick post today as we have friends coming for lunch and Im doing a roast.

This card was made a while ago but has never been shared before.

I used the inner metal lid of a large youghurt pot for this one.

First I dabbed on alcohol inks then embossed in my cuttlebug.  Finally I rubbed Stazon ink over the raised part of the embossing and diecut with my Tonic matting die.

I punched the corners of the black card with a corner punch and rounded the corners of the pink card.

The sentiment is a Hobby Arts wooden stamp.

I would like to enter my card into The Allsorts Challenge - Week 350
The Snippets Playground - Week 216

Hi Barb,
oh my word this is fab.
I would not have thought of doing that.
Go to the top of the recycling class, and what super way to use this.
Such a very brilliant design too.
Enjoy your friends visit, and have a very lovely weekend.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Best use of a yoghurt pot lid I've EVER seen Barb. Good on yer for thinking outside the pot! LOL!

Thanks for coming over to the SNIPPETS PLAYGROUND with it. Fancy a glass or two of Prosecco? If so, see Brenda in the Playground Treehouse later. It's Friday night and the weekend starts here, so I may climb the ladder to join you.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Krisha said...

Thank you Barb for the lovely comments on all the sympathy cards I've made. I'm just happy they are all done......and hope I don't have to use them very soon.

This card is delightful, and who would guess where the material came from. Very clever idea indeed! I really like the way you did the corners of the mats, very striking. It all came together beautifully.

Barb said...

I'm definitely up for that. See you all later. xx

I have embossed and inked the lids of the aluminium backing tins, but the pot of yougurt is an amazing idea!! Genial!!!! And your embossing and inking looks wonderfully! Love so much also the round scallop shape, and the elegant layers with the decorations on the corners!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Another blast from the past! I remember the yogurt lids being a thing to. I never could bring myself to try it though. Food wrappers seem like they should go in the waste bin. This is fun though.
