One of the reasons I started a blog was so I could participate in Papertrey Ink's Blog Hops.
Nichole says, "'Tis the season to recycle! Your challenge this month is to repurpose leftover holiday trimmings such as Christmas cards or gift wrap and create something all-new! Not only will this be fun, but also budget & earth friendly at the same time!"
When I began the card, I knew I wanted to use the "HoHoHo" card front. Originally I was going for this weeks SCS card sketch. However, I never could find a panel for section two that did not totally clash. I'll save that layout for another day.
Thanks to my Aunt Glenda for sending the Christmas card that I was able to repurpose into a new card. Santa was on the inside of the original card...he was all in gray, so I used Bic Mark-it pens to add some color. Inkssentials pen added some white to the fur trim of Santa's hat & coat. A touch of Icicle Stickles was popped onto the hat puff ball (hmm, if I owned Fun Flock, that would have looked cool on the white parts). Ribbon is from Target $1 Spot. The sentiment and kraft card base are both from Papertrey.
