No scissors, no cutters, no tools- make a card

Materials given: 8 by 10 cardstock, other loose pieces of cardstock of various colours, a stamped image to colour, and some embellishments. Make a card. What a challenge. At first I had no idea what to do. You don't realize how dependent you are on your basic tools. This challenge allowed me to go back to the very basics, so after thinking for a while, I decided to tear everything. The proglem was tearing straight, but discovered that if I folded the part, the tear would be straighter. Here are a few cards, some more primitive that others.
Comments from people: natural, edgy, antiquey, "I like it"
Who knows, I may start a whole new line of cards.
