More Reconditioned Christmas Cards

I am a hoarder of note and people often give me their old cards sometime after Christmas...I have lots & lots and MUST do something with them! Friends who have been attending my classes for the last 11 years know that I usually try to incorporate reconditioned cards out of old cards a few times through the years in my classes to show that one can really make something beautiful out of these retired cards! And they don't always have to be Christmas cards - one can do the same thing with birds, flowers, etc.

This was a big card that I decided would make 4 very nice cards...

This is how I cut the card up.

I even used the back of the card which had a lovely texture and Cuttlebugged it...I knew I'd be covering the Sylkard name with the picture.

Here are the 4 finished cards - I used Cuttlebug backgrounds. layering and Peel-Offs on them and I think they look super! What a difference - more than just 'spoeg en plak' (cut & stick)!
