Recycled cards

Hey yall. Hope this week has been good to you. My week has been busy as usual. I've got a few cards to show you. One of my co-workers and her mom both had almost every card they had ever received. They have been going through them and giving me the card fronts. I really wish on these I had taken before pictures of the card before I used a piece of it to make a new card. To thank them for giving them to me, I gave them these 3 cards.

This first card features a beautiful teacup picture. I really love the colors on this one.


On this second card, I embossed the green layer with the writing cuttlebug embossing folder before mounting on the navy card to accentuate the writing in the background of the image.


This third card was so easy--I just cut out the gift bag image and adhered it to yellow cardstock allowing the "tissue paper" to stick up over the top.

I hope yall enjoy these. You should really try this sometime!

Jenn - These are awesome!!
I never think to make "hand made" cards with store bought card fronts - I think I will have to save cards from now on and give them new life.

I especially love the teacup card - it's so soft and pretty!

What a neat idea - I usually leave the recycling of cards to the kids but I may have to start my own collection :)
