Recycling for July Rudolph


I don't often recycle Christmas cards into new ones, because I have so much stuff to use up as it is. I do usually put them in the recycling though first removing the bits that aren't able to be recycled. I had saved this one because of the intricate papercutting on the front. I wasn't keen on the birds it had on it though. So I used the inner that came with the card (a glittered paper) and cut two robins from it and the sentiment. The ribbon is original.

I used a full sheet of paper from the Paper Boutique inside.

This is the back of the card and I wanted to cover the printing up so I used a snippet left over from when I last used these papers offcuts. The detail was on the part I used and I did wonder how this would ever get used... I also made a little recycled badge too. You will see that in the bottom left I did not cover that warning, as it relates to small parts on the card and children and so I decided for safety to leave it.

I'm entering this into the Rudolph Challenge over on Mo's blog and also at the Snippets Playground at Pixies's Crafty Worksop - although it is a very large snippet, but I am only playing for fun!


It's a lovely Christmas card, you have done so well recycling the frame and the robin! Such lovely paper!
