I participated in a swap at the Shack that asked for Christmas cards to be recycled into cards that could be used for other purposes. This is what I came up with...
I recycled the gold frame and used some lovely holiday red paper for the background.
This original background behind the fern was a painting like Christmas card front. I prepared a base piece of cardstock by running it through the xyron. I laid out the pieces as I cut them into strips. The burgundy background is sprayed with Radiant Rain. The fern is stamped on a transparency and dabber gold acrylic paint is on the back.
For this final card I used the back of a card for the background of this new one. The stamped images are made with shrink plastic.
