Recycled Christmas card = New name plate
I am a big recycler. I want to help preserve our resources for our children to enjoy in the future. I was taking down the Christmas cards we received and I just couldn't part with this one. My husbands Boss sent it and it so happened to be made of the same ARC Shimmer paper that I have, so I thought for a minute hhhhhhmmmmmm........... I can make a name plate for my desk. So I look thru all my shimmer paper and found the perfect match and I cut a 2 1/2 by 8 1/2 strip to cove the Christmas greeting, and I got my Gypsy and used the Cursive 101 cartridge and welded the letters together to look more professional. I used a gold metallic texture card stock. I also added some clear bling on some of the stars. I punched holes in the corners with my Crop-a-Dile and added gold brads, and this is what I got.
What do you think.
