I thought it would be fun to participate in Papertrey’s December Blog Hop. The challenge this month was to create a paper crafting project using scraps of wrapping paper, parts of holiday cards, recycled gift tags or bits of ribbon. We received a standard “Hallmark” type card (although I am not sure if it truly was a Hallmark card) that had some nice patterns on it. So, I cut it up and created this Christmas thank you card. I just have to make sure I don’t send this thank you card to the family that gave us the original Christmas card. LOL!
There’s not much to explain about how I made the card as it is pretty simple. I am having fun making accordion flowers lately so I had to add one to this card. I used CTMH Colonial White cardstock as the base and the original card pieces for the rest. The sentiment is Papertrey’s Signature Greetings stamped with CTMH’s Cocoa ink. The button is from Papertrey’s White & Cream Mix with a small piece of CTMH Chocolate Waxy Flax threaded through the middle. I sponged some Chocolate ink around the edges to finish it off.
This is what the original card looked like before I had at it with my scissors and paper trimmer. LOL!
