Merry Christmas Bella

One of the many cards in my upcyling Christmas card box is the one I made for my sister last year.  I peeled the image from the card and used it to make this card for the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown sketch challenge.  I'm also entering it into Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Use the Word Christmas' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra 'Anything goes as long as it's Christmas'.

Upcycled Christmas card
Woodware Crafty Edger Ribbon Cassette
Red mirri card and green spot card

I used the ribbon cassette on a piece of red mirri and trimmed it to size.  This was layered with green spot card and attached to the card front.  Following the sketch, I attached the image using foam tape.   To finish, I attached three red gems.

What a gorgeous card! I really like the colors and the polka dot paper. And what a great idea to upcycle a card that was already used! Thanks for joining in with us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown!

Hi Kath

I am so behind with all my blog visiting I nearly missed this little beauty.

I love that green spot card very much.

Hope you have had a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
