The idea for this card came from the current challenge at Jingle Belles - JB:20:01 where the ladies would like us to use some left over wrapping paper/tags on our cards. I'm also playing along with Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - HLSXMAS#01, where anything goes.
My recycled item is the large glittered red bus. This actually came from a card that I received, but I liked it so much that I kept it. Going through my stash of stamps I came across a fun set from Papertrey Ink which had some layering stamps and included Big Ben and a London bus. I used my MISTI to line up the stamps and get crisp images. From the co-ordinating sentiment set I stamped the Santa image and used the appropriate sentiment.
Inside, I cut a mat layer of bright red card and on the white panel added a large greeting and some bright snowflakes. One of the advantages of having to reorganise your craft room is that you come across stamps sets you'd forgotten about. You might see a few more of my old Papertrey stamps sets in the coming months!! It feels good getting back into my crafting groove!!
That's all for now. Have a good weekend.
