Christmas cards created by reusing card fronts and adding a layer and a greeting

Another three Christmas cards!! I started by trimming my cards to fit on my coordinating card fronts.  For my first card, I added a gold layer behind the beautifully foiled snowflake image, added the foiled greeting trimmed from the card with two tiny silver brads and then layered it onto a green card front. 

For my second card, I trimmed the beautifully foiled ornament from my card and tore the bottom edge to remove a quote.  I fit very nicely on my green card front.  To finish it off I simply added a font greeting from my stash layered with coordinating gold gift wrap with double sided tape!!

For my third card, I trimmed the front of the card and layered it with silver foil leaving it showing on the right and the left and it is also revealed through the star die cuts in the sky.  I added a small greeting printed on transparency to the lower left corner with two tiny white brads before I glued this large element to a dark blue card front. 


Christmas card featuring a card front, metallic border and bling

I am still refurbishing used Christmas cards to create a stash of cards for myself. 
For this one I trimmed this image from the large card and added a coordinating gold metallic border on the right hand side.  I cut it with a wavy cutter from gold metallic packaging from my stash.  I mounted this layer to a dark green card front, added a rhinestone to the middle of the star which I coloured with Sharpies and then used a red Sharpie to add colour to the ornaments on the tree!!
