A Christmas Card Recycled



So tired! This has been an exhausting week!...... and for no reason at all when I went to bed last night, tired as can be, I couldn’t sleep! Wired! And today we decided we absolutely had to do all the things we’ve been putting off, like getting groceries, going to get batteries, going to the fruit stand, the bank, the library  and more. I’m ready to flop out tonight!

Did you know it’s only 6 months until Christmas! Hey, don’t shoot the messenger! I’m just saying it’s time to get those Christmas cards made now so you don’t have to rush to do it in December. Here’s one I made last week.

I use old Christmas cards people give me for a variety of things – mostly I run them under cardstock when die cutting because then I don’t’ have to emboss the shape afterwards….but I came across this snowman on a very large card and I liked it. So, I took some Stampin’ Up blue cardstock (Night of Navy or Almost Navy) and die cut an oval in the centre of it. Then I placed the card behind it and trimmed away anything sticking out. The snowman has very fine glitter around him so I added more and spread it outside the oval and some on top and then some as snowflakes still falling. Then I mounted it all on a white card base. Quick, cute card even if it is a recycled item.

That’s all for a Thursday,

Cheers
Violet

I have a ton of saved Christmas cards.... a ton... 28 years worth if you can believe it.... At Christmas i tie a pretty ribbon around the stack and set them out.... Sometimes i go thru them and read what people wrote 20+ years ago...i enjoy it... but maybe its time to let go and repurpose some of those cards....This is a great idea Violet! Get some rest! Hugs! deb
