Recycled Christmas cards

This background paper is the back of a Christmas photo card. I felt a little bad cutting the kids in half but it's their future I'm trying to save. ♻️🌎. 

This first one, I combined a beautiful candle card cut down and taped on to the striped base. The sentiment is a die cut by Clearly Besotted.



The second card I combined the poinsettias card with the striped paprt that I heat embossed the sentiment in black. The red corners are by CM.


Thanks for looking.

I have two graduation cards for today that are a little different but you have to try new and different things to see what works and what you like. The hippo stamp is by Fiskars and is colored in with Copic markers. I die cut the image out with a Spellbinders die and inked the inside with distress ink. The bckground cardstock is dry embossed with a Cuttlebug. The sentiment stamp is by Clearly Besotted. The grad cap is a Jolee's sticker.





The stamps are from the same stamps set. This embossing folder is by Darice and the twill on the top and bottom are by Karen Foster.
