Recycling Christmas

One more for today, small snow flakes has been falling all day. It has been very beautiful and I just had to make a Christmas card, can you get better inspiration?

Challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge: B for Bows, Bunting or Baking
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge: Something starting with B

Materials used:
Piece of old Christmas card cut out, edges distressed with Distress ink, matting made by colouring white paper with a Promarker pen, mounted on scraps for dimension, recycled a ribbon from a Christmas pressie, added lots of different Stickles for the glitter effect. Bazzill white hammered cardstock.
There's stamping on the inside, forgot to take a pic of it.

Thank you for visiting, hope you come back soon again! Have a lovely Saturday evening!

Love and hugs
Maarit

  1. So cute. I love recycled cards and save any I receive to do the same. It is a good feeling to upcycle one!
