Merry and Bright: Recycled, Glittered Christmas Card

I found a cute sample card on Martha Stewart magazine. I love the cooper leaves border and I thought it can be recycled of throwing it away πŸ˜€

Merry & Bright: A Recycled Christmas Card by Helen Gullett | Blog at | #handmadecard #christmascard #diecutting #watercoloring #recycling #cardmaking #justnick #silhouettecameo

I cut a piece of DCWV Glitter Cardstock Matstack that match the border color and glued on top of the commercial in the middle of it.

Then I cut the Merry & Bright from Holiday Sentiments cutting file from JustNick out of Canson watercolor paper, then added some mint color from Pearlescent paint, let it dry and then added on the glitter cardstock. While drying the paint, I accidentally blew the dot for letter i, so I replaced it with a clear gem πŸ˜€

Last step is add the finished panel on the card base. And it’s done.

I love how we can be creative by turning a commercial card into a handmade card. It’s a way to recycle.

Today’s card I link up atΒ Virginia’s View Challenge #21 – All About Glitter. This is her last challenge this year and she will take a break. You can read more about it on her blog post. I know many cardmakers love her challenge. I hope you’ll join her last challenge this year and have fun!

Also, I join Muse: ChristmasVisions 31.Β The Muse this week is from Kimberly Wiener:
