non paper postcards - part 2

Boy, oh boy!  You guys really got your creative juices flowing for this challenge.
Some very cool things have arrived in my mailbox this week.  Are you ready to have your mind blown?

Carroll's cards are made from foil and plastic:

Ciara's card is from a CD:

Ellen made her card from wood and string:

Gina's cards are from an old record and duct tape:

Honi's cards are embellished fabric:

Indigo's cards are thick plexiglass:

(see how they are transparent?)

Joanne's first card is this zippered pouch filled with interesting tid-bits:

 Joanne's second "card" is this sturdy painted tube, wrapped in twine.
I can't wait to see the looks on the faces of my postal workers when I go to send this!

Katie's first card is from a plastic "clamshell" type of package, it's filled with buttons and beads and trinkets.

 Her next two cards are made from fused grocery bags

and Katie's fourth card is a thick styrofoam tray:

Leslie's fabric cards are embellished with lots of cool trim.

Mandy's cards are made from painted transparencies that have been stitched together with bits of cool fiber sandwiched in between:

You guys are AMAZING!
