Recycled Cheep Talk

Last summer at our annual convention, one of the cute ideas demonstrated on the main stage was this card idea.  There was a cute name for it too, but I can't remember that.  Since then I have wanted to do one of these in my stamp club, but not until Sale-a-bration did I get the So Green stamp set - and it was free!

The front of the card could be anything, but I wanted to go with something all-purpose and used the Cheep Talk bird.  We also used the Framed Tulips Impressions folder.  But the cool part of this card is the 3 x 3 envelope on the inside of the card.  Stamp your greeting, sign your name and leave a fresh card inside so your recipient can reuse your card.  Now could you do this without the So Green stamp set?  Of course, but it is just the right touch to make sure everyone understands what to do.  For years, I have been putting my personal message on a post-it note for some people, but it often required an explanation.  Now all I have to do is stamp "hand stamped by me ... recycled by you" and then it's pretty clear. 

Please contact me if you want your very own So Green set for free during Sale-a-bration!
