The prompt for Day 16 at Beccy's Place Month long holiday challenge is the letter N. 
I have chosen Noel.

The starting point for this card was the central panel which is a sentiment that has been recycled from a Christmas card I have received.

The gold and silver theme has been carried through the rest of the card.

The panel has been mounted onto gold paper and then onto silver glitter card.

The card base is a large scalloped edge one. One of my favourite things to do with this card is to add card candi dots in alternating colours around the edge. These are raised on small foam squares.

Quite a simple card to put together but I am happy to recycle a shop bought card and make a large statement card.

I do hope that I am demonstrating just how many fabulous elements can be recycled from old Christmas cards, tags, gift bags and Christmas crackers. They are all great sources of free stash and you are doing your bit for the environment too.

Card Details :-

Size - 8" x 8"
Embellishments - Card Candi from Craftwork Cards

  3. You are doing an awesome job encouraging us to recycle and upcycle Mandy, your cards are beautiful! I love the design of this one. Great idea to start with the reclaimed "NOEL" panel and then build on from there. The scalloped card base is fabulous and I like how you've used the shape to determine where the little dots will go. Fabulous!

  4. What a fab card. Love the papers used to cut out letters, they look very effective x
