Upscaled Cards

I found some extra Christmas cards from years past and decided to alter them to include in my Caring Hearts pile.

I first cut out the portions of the original Unicef cards I wanted to use.  I didn't worry about trying to cut out exactly the same area each time. With the tree card I die cut some cardinals and popped those over the existing cardinals.  On the other I sponged a snowflake with Brilliance ink and popped it over the printed snowflakes.  For both I stamped a sentiment outside and in.  I then mounted these upscaled fronts onto a cover stock base.  Easy peasy, huh?

The Details:  upcycled Unicef card fronts, Lawn Fawn Stitched Snowflakes dies, Impression Obsession Birch Tree (the cardinals), Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa, Brilliance Platinum Planet, Scotch foam tape, Glossy Accents, Recollections cream 110 lb cardstock
