When Earth Day Meets Rudolph Days.....

Hello crafty peeps, it's time for the April Rudolph Days, wow I know what you are it the 30th already, no it isn't I just managed to have some time on Earth Day to make a card from a card "early". 

I save all my store bought cards as I know there are challenges out there around Earth day to do recycling/upcycling and what better way to use a gorgeous wintery scene. I loved the gold and whte of the original card so kept with the theme, I used the Stampin'up ovals as they are the largest of my oval sets. You would wonder why you need 4 sets, but they are all so different. The white layer is embossed with the Gently Falling embossing folder again from Stampin'up (it's my fav.) layered it on gold metallic posterboard. (dollar tree) It was so pretty I decided to omit a sentiment.

Wow look I even heat embossed the sentiment!! The layer behind the sentiment is also from the same greeting card, I trimmed it down and added it as the gold layer behind the sentiment. 
The wood mount stamp is from Impression Obsession Inc. Lindsey Ostrom

Thanks for stopping by today, and remember I'm early so there is still 5 days to make your card for Rudolph Days.

I'm entering this in:
Rudolph Days ~~ April Edition

Have a wonderful crafty week!!!

Lovely. I like saving mine too and up-cycling them. I use several of those to give to people. I'm glad you didn't add a sentiment on the outside as it looks so pretty.

I knew without looking on the embossed sentiment that it was going to be an Impression Obsession stamp. Love the font and it turned out beautifully. [Bunny]

Beautiful upcycling of the store bought cards.

This is beautiful! The oval is a perfect way to upcycle that pretty store-bought card. And woohoo for embossing the sentiment!

I do love a bit of recycling and your card is fabulous, it looks perfect set in the oval and the wonderful sentiment too. Thanks for joining the fun at Rudolph Days this month.
