Jingle Belles & Shopping our stash.

Jingle Belles  and Shopping our stash are also upcycling because of Earth Day.
I began with some packaging
I inked the Melissa Francis shaped piece with sage green and after cutting the bigger one to size inked around it with pinecone ink. I also used a page from an old paperback as another layer.
The flower was cut from a scrap of felt in my mother's sewing box and some scraps of tulle.
I stitched a red button to hold the layers together.

Next, I pulled a canvas apart,that I made for a DT a few years ago.
The fern leaves have been recycled on this card.
I added washi tape and a rub on.
And here you have a festive card made almost from recycling.
