Last Wednesday, April 22, was Earth Day. I decided to
take note of the day by making a "recycled" card. Over the years I have saved nearly every greeting card, mostly Christmas cards, and my aunt recently sent me card fronts she had been saving. So I took one of those older cards and made this simple all occasion card. The card front with the branch and beautiful red bird was actually larger than my typical 5 x 7 size, so I trimmed it just a bit. I placed it on a striped DP and attached that to Bazzill CS. To highlight the pretty little bird I cut an opening in vellum with my Nesties and folded a margin around to the side and attached it to the back of the card.
On the inside is a quote I found in a collection of Vellum Sentiments.
All was very simple and, best of all, reused a wonderful old card.
