Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Card Challenge #367

CHNC blog button DT

The first challenge of 2018 is to Upcycle or Use Anything Old!

I did a Crafty Christmas Card Challenge with some card makers from Live, Love, Cards Card Exchange Group. I received a beautifully made card from Carole Thomas from Alberta, Canada and it was too pretty just to throw away so I decided I would recycle it. I am showing her original card first, then my upcycled version.

To make my card, using a circle die, I die cut out the medallion from the center of the card. I also used IO – Pine Branch Die to cut out 2 different coloured card stock and doubled them up for some dimension to my branch. I used an Ornament die so I so I could turn the medallion into a Christmas Ornament hanging from a branch. The sentiment is from Papertry Ink. The final touch was to add a few gems.
