A birthday card for a little sailor

We are working on reuse of things from the kitchen at StampARTic

I made a card using an altered "diaper fold". This is one of the cards that will be included in my ABC card maker class.


The image is a finished coloured topper Sheet from Mo Manning (Hobby House: Sailor Crew) The gears have been cut out of a Balsamico vinegar box. 


The seaweeds are made of a plastic box, that came with a box of salad leaves. I have seen  branches being made of shrink plastic and coloured with alcohol ink. I wanted to find out if plastic, that I normally throw away - also can be used as Shrink plastic - and some of it can! I cut out the seaweeds with scissors, used the hot air gun to shrink it, and coloured it with alcohol ink.


The mast and sails is a tag, which can be taken out. I have made a flag out of Washi tape in the top of the mast. 


There is room to write a message on the back of the tag.


I am entering these challenges:
