Santa's On His Way

As part of my craft clearout I've emptied my box of upcycled cards to see which ones I will really use.  I've been a bit ruthless and those that I've decided I won't use have gone into the recycling bin, I've made cards from some and a few have gone back into the box.

To make this card I used a lovely Santa and soldier card.  I've kept the card quite simple as there's so much detail in the picture.  The soldiers and Santa are highlighted with gold so I trimmed a strip of gold glitter paper and attached it across the lower part of a red card blank.  I them trimmed the Santa card and then attached it across the centre of the glitter strip.


To make this card I used:
     7" x 5" red embossed tent fold card blank
     Upcycled Christmas card
     Xcut gold adhesive glitter sheet

I am entering the following challenges:
     ABC Christmas Challenge - U for Upcycle
     Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - Twinkle

Purging my stash of "I may use this some day" cards would be a really good idea! :D I'm glad you kept this one, because it upcycled into a beautiful ew card! Thanks for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge!
