Have You Ever........
......... received a card in the mail that you knew needed a new life? This little bear was on a card I received a couple years ago from my dear deceased sister-in-law. I took it apart and saved the cute little bear. This year, as I was preparing my cards for the holiday, I gave him a second look, and just knew I had to recycle him!
I used a base of white, and then added card stock and designer paper from DCWV. I punched a border with the MS, Bangle Chain Trim punch. My ticket is a digi. The crystal snowflakes are ones that I picked up at Target.
My friend Carol taught me a new trick, and this is definitely a card that I used it on. Since the little bear had so much going on, I flipped the card inside out to protect the front before I tucked him in the envelope. Here is hoping that he arrived in one piece to his new home! That trick really made for a much smoother card. A few of my cards came this year with the embellishments poking through and damage stickers from the P.O.. Try this out, it might help! Have a super Tuesday!
