Upcycled Christmas

I made this card for the Jingle Belles 'Peace on Earth Day' challenge using two upcycled Christmas cards.  I'm also entering the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes', the Merry Little Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and Crafty Hazenut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes'.

7" x 5" dark red embossed card blank
Two upcycled Christmas cards
Woodware Corner Rounder punch
White card

I trimmed the front of the Christmas card with the aperture so it was slightly smaller than the card blank and rounded the corners.  I laid the aperture over the second card and trimmed the image so it was slightly larger than the circle and attached it to the rear.  As the second card was square and not oblong I added a small piece of white card above it before attaching it to the card.
