Reusing card fronts when making handmade cards
On the left hand card, I added a thin yellow border to the right hand side of the trimmed floral image which has a gold border. I attached the border to the back of the image using double sided tape and then glued the whole element to a pink card front. I added a laser printed vellum greeting which I trimmed to size and attached with double sided tape just behind the words.
The right hand side features an element cut from a large card. It was not quite wide enough for an A2 but lower on the card was this little piece of measuring tape which was a perfect accent which I adhered to the right hand side by taping them together on the back using regular tape. That was perfect!! I wanted to add a bit of texture so I cut slits just above and below the first D and inserted vintage seam binding gluing the ends to the back of the layer. I added the gold round paper clip and I was done!! Another card for my stash!! Therese
