Earth Day

As always, the Jingle Belles are celebrating Earth Day by challenging us to reuse, recycle or upcycle stuff on our Christmas cards. And recycling is also the current theme at Sweet Stampin'.

For my card, I repurposed the booklet from the Greek postal services that had held our Christmas postage stamps. I backed my image with thin cardstock before fussy cutting the image and adhered this to an alcohol ink (yupo) panel from my UFO box that seemed a perfect match. All that was left to do was to adhere my panel to a red card base and stamp a sentiment. Done!

I'm playing at:

Jingle Belles - Earth Day

Sweet Stampin' - Recycled elements or AG

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - Anthing Christmas goes 
(optional: monochromatic)

CHNC - #434 Anything Christmas goes
(optional: house or building)
