As I go through my craft room, I’m finding lots of little leftover gems that I decided to make into cards. I recycled some cards – cutting an image from the fronts and re-using it in a slightly different way:
I like to recycle cards. If it made me smile, I can pass that smile onto someone else!
These cards were made with leftovers.
The first one – the flower – is just a leftover piece of cardstock from the Songbird stack by DCWV. The star is a negative of a cut from Wall Decor and More. The Trick or Treat card is a double leftover! I had ribbon that repeated “Trick or Treat” and there was just that section left. I couldn’t waste it, so I combined it with an image from the clip art set Ooga Booga from PC Crafter that I had printed and mounted last year but never used. The orange background paper is from a Martha Stewart Holidays punch pad. The pear is a leftover cut I made awhile back – I needed one but made and saved an extra – and the “What a Pear” sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper Fruit and Veggie Puns stamp set. The simple Christmas card was made with the negative of a cut I made awhile back. If the negative can stand on its own (like the star above) then I save it. Unfortunately, I can’t even seem to find that file on my computer anymore, so I can’t give credit for it. If you recognize it, please let me know!
