Recycling!

Jingle Belles & Open-Minded Crafting Fun are both hosting recycling challenges this fortnight, so I combined the two & made this:


Supplies: flair from American Crafts; label Nesties die; ...unknown paper scraps, recycled Christmas card image, cardboard scrap

I have a few people who save pretty Christmas cards for me to recycle - I especially love the bird images. To go with the recycling theme I decided to use scraps of designer paper, and then a piece of cardboard I've peeled the paper backing from to expose the corrugated inside.

What a great way to recycle christmas cards especially when you re-designed them again.

The cardinal image was the perfect size for recycling into a handmade card.

Hmm, I think I have that plaid paper, too. This worked so well -- the card panel, the corrugated cardboard, the flair... all coordinates perfectly.
