Recycled Christmas Card

Hey there.....

The challenge at Jingle Belles is to use something recycled on a new Christmas card.

You probably already know that I save Christmas cards that have been sent to us.
Here is a card sent by my Aunt Linda last year:

I knew I would reuse the sentiment panel somehow, and I really like the layout, so I pretty much just CASed the original card.

I fussy cut the sentimental panel, added a shiny gold ribbon behind it as well as two strips of green card stock that I sprayed with Cottage Ivy Fireworks. Edges were inked and base card was inked with Delicata Golden Glitz (the best gold metallic ink on the face of this earth).

Save your Christmas cards...the possibilities are endless for recycling!

Great save with that panel and it does make a beautiful card. That gold ribbon is one of my favorites to use too!
