Adapt and Recycle!

Sometimes I have leftovers from classes or workshops that I want to use up before I cut more cardstock. So, this week, I took some pink and green cardstock leftovers (see back card) and adapted them to make a winter card. I'm really pleased with the results, and I hope you are inspired to do the same!

The card in the back uses Bud Basics stamps from SU along with Sincere Salutations. The card in the front uses a newer SU set called Snowfall. I added a little rhinestone brad to the center of the snowflake, and the Ticket Corner Punch adds a bit of interest as well.

Both cards have a Pretty in Pink base, a Certainly Celery panel behind the white stamped panel. I used Classic Black ink to stamp the sentiment and the snowflakes are stamped in Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery.

Today, I've got to start my Christmas shopping list! In years past, I've made my big ticket list for electronics, etc and I shop online in my pj's early Black Friday morning. I usually find the cameras or electronics that I want at Sears online. I have no idea what everyone in my family wants this year. I think I'll be making more homemade gifts this year!

Have a great day everyone!

This is a fantastic idea! I will have to try this, too. I have a quite a lot of left overs because I always overcut, but then I'm not always in the mood to recreate a card that I've made before and that I've seen my customers make, too. TFS!

This is adorable! I never thought of using pink before this year as a Christmas card. :o)
