INTERNATIONAL ART AND SOUL CHALLENGE NO 2 - RECYCLING


Good afternoon fellow bloggers out there - this is the second challenge of the INTAAS blog and this fortnight we are recycling - so here's my 'recycled' Christmas card.  Many crafters can't bear to throw away all of the cards they receive at this time of year and I'm one of them!  


I used the front of the card - 'chopped' just slightly smaller than the original.  Although you can't tell from this angle, there are several snowflakes on the Christmas tree that have been mounted on foam squares just to add extra dimension.

Ingredients

Recycled Christmas card front
7" x 7" White Card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Creative Expressions Embossing Folder - Snowflake Lattice
Elizabeth Craft Designs Dies - Garden Notes 'Holiday Holly and Berries' dies
Apple Blossom Dies - Leaves DIOB0267
Pearls - stash

I hope you like this early Christmas card - my favourite type of card to create I have to admit!!  Our Challenge is 'Just for Fun' but we have wonderful badges to display on your sidebar if you are one of our lucky winners/Top 3 - all chosen by the DT.   Don't forget you can make anything you like just as long as you recycle!

So glad that you have popped by again, and I hope you find time to check out the creations of my Teamies on the INTAAS blog.

Lots of hugs to you all and please take care.

Love Suexxx
