Rudolph Days

It's the 25th of the month and time for


This is an upcycled card. 

I rarely do the upcycling anymore.  I have too many stamps and dies to play with.

But once in awhile I get a card that begs to be taken apart and reassembled.

I cut it up, embossed a background piece and stamped Merry Christmas.

Done!

is having Holiday Week
so I'll go visit there too.

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

Oh this is brilliant and I can see why you just could not let this go with out using it to re-cycle. Gorgeous colours and a fabulous card.

Absolutely, positively, your card is faboulous! We are in the mist if moving to another state so it will be awhile before I can make Christmas cards.

Great re-use of that Christmas card, Bonnie! That was how I first started making cards - but then I discovered rubber stamps and ink! I still do the upcycling occasionally as some cards I receive are just too lovely to go in the recycling bin.

Brenda said...

I hear you on upcycling... I have so many craft things I don't really need to take apart old Christmas cards. I see why you had to use this one though. It makes into a sweet card.
