Some people feel badly about throwing out the cards and sentiments they received throughout the year and Christmas. As a card maker, some people give their old cards because they know I can re-purpose them into something useful. Here's a set of cards I made from such cards. Maybe I've discovered a new line of cards!!
Since most commercial card are larger than the A2 I make I have enough in the card to make several elements. Like the turquoise one I punched the label from a piece of the card I cut off so the color matches perfectly.
