Recycling old cards to make something new

For this card I cut a card I had received into two pieces and matted them on black. I matted a piece of blue that went with the pictures in black and placed it in the middle of my card. I then fastened my two recycled pictures to the card. Stamped and embossed the flourishes on the top and bottom and there you have it a beautiful card. The inside verse on this one makes it a Thinking of You card. You can do any kind of card and make double use of some of the cards you receive that are too pretty to throw away.
Happy crafting,


  1. Beautiful card, looks perfect! =)
