Recycled Cards - turn last years cards into something new! Created by you...
For these two I felt that the card front was very pretty and wanted to add little to it. Ribbon seemed to be the most appropriate. I did, however, Stamp a sentiment inside both cards as to give it a more crated personal look.
The tag has a stopper on the bottom of it so when the tag is pulled out it will stop so it will not come completely out.
Here is what the card looks like if it is allowed to free stand, the vellum doesn't press up against the winter forest background. I also chose to have the frame of the card front to not be attached to the vellum so that the vellum could show off its full effect without having the frame in the way all the time. I feel it adds interest to the card as well.
The bow that I added was wrapped around the frame of the card front.
I used a inside sentiment from on of the cards I recycled that had not been written in and cut out the "Wishing you..." phrase to cover up the tag on the inside of the card that shows through the vellum from the front.
