Recycling Crafts-Calendar Recycling

Pop up Christmas Card
Wish all my blog friends and readers a happy New Year.Sharing a winter theme Pop up  card .
Window Card
Die Cut a window and popped it above a winter scene with accordion folds.
Window card
Recycled a gorgeous old calendar with sparkling shimmery pages to make the winter scene window card.
Recycling craft
On the inside I added tabs to  a fireplace image [ from birdscards] and made it into a pop up card.
Pop up Christmas Card
The glittery red border was cut with a gorgeous die manufactured by our own Indian Itsy Bitsy [so proud that finally  dies are being made in India!!]PS: not getting any incentive for writing this -- I just like to support  local brands and craft shops .
Pop up Christmas Card
I have used the negative of the die cut as a border on the lower border of the card.
I was so crazy busy in December I didn't even post a single card to friends or family !!Feels so bad as a card maker when that happens! Also blogging had become such a " feel good" therapy that I was starting to get withdrawal symptoms from not blogging...does that happen to you ....?

Supplies : Dies : Cheery Lynn Window[Crafters Corner],Itsy Bitsy Deckle Border,Couture Creations Victorian Frame[Itsy Bitsy] Stickers : Shilpi Border and sentiment , Itsy Bitsy Foam Stars & Unbranded Stocking, Card stock : Staples

  19. Liebe Sonia,
    ein frohes neues Jahr wünsche ich dir und deiner Familie.
    Du hast eine wunderschöne Ryciclingkarte gewekelt. Man sollte viel öfter mal so etwas machen, statt alles fertig zu kaufen. Dabei kommen dann so schöne Werke heraus, wie deines.
    Liebe Grüße, Anja
