Merry Christmas Upcycling

Hello and happy Monday! Today's card was created for the latest Jingle Belles card challenge. The challenge this month is to upcycle, recycle, etc. I have been doing this with Christmas cards for years. Each year before I recycle my holiday things I go through each of my cards and select the ones that can be re-used in one form or another. This beautiful card was just too easy. All I had to do was die cut a panel out of the main image using a stitched rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs. Stamp a sentiment from the Papertrey Ink Winter Snow Globe stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink onto the panel and add a few red sequins from Craft Medley the front. I mounted the entire panel onto some inexpensive fun foam from Hobby Lobby and popped it up onto an A2 white card base covered in some real red cardstock from Stampin' UP and this card was done. I love when I can re-use an item that would have ended up in the trash and it helps me get a leg up on my Christmas cards for the upcoming holiday season. Thank you for visiting my blog today!
