Recycled Snowman Card

Hello, everyone!  I'm back again today with a holiday card!  I have not been meeting my goal of making two cards a month so I'd like to get back on track.  I will be sharing another holiday card today so stay tuned!

For this card, I recycled a retail Christmas card that I received several years ago. It was too cute not to give it another life!  The snowman is actually on the inside of the card, with a circular aperture on the front.  I added a die-cut and stamped sentiment in red on the front (Simon Says Stamp Sending die and Your Next Stamp Waddles Winter Happiness).


I finished the inside of the card as well. I die-cut the snowman with a circle, stamped:a sentiment in red (Your Next Stamp Winter Wishes - retired), and added two strips of coordinating patterned paper.

I would like to support the following challenges:

  1. Christmas Kickstart 18 Get a Head-er Start (inspiration from challenge blog header shown below - I was inspired by the snowman and how he had his arms in the air, as well as his attire) 1/3 C8
  2. Crafter's Castle 20 AG Optional Any Occasion 1/3 C10
  3. Double Trouble 36 Thing 1 - Round and Round (circles on front and inside) 1/4

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

I love how you recycle and having been using them for the Rudolph Day's Challenges. It's a shame to waste such pretty cards. It's nice to give them new life.

Great way to up cycle a card. I'm going to start saving mine so I can do this and give them an extra life. Who knows, someone might just give them a 3rd life. It's really cute. [Bunny]

Great upcycling, Kitty!!! Well done! The snowman is really too cute to waste it!! Loving the idea to put it in a circle inside and cut the aperture on the front! How sweet colours!! Love the "Sending" sentiment outside, how lovely!! Beautiful finish on the inside of the card, it's a thing that usually I don't make, but it looks very professional! I have always to learn by you! :)
Hugs!!

I agree it's much too cute of a snowman not to upcycle him. I love the design with the image on the inside and peeking out of the circle. Fabulous job.

I'm all for recycling pretty cards and this is adorable! I love the die cut aperture, which gives a dimensional look to your design.
