First Christmas card for the year & tictactoe

I've started on the Christmas cards and here's the first one.
The challenge at is old and new.

I've had a roll of gold embossed paper for several years so opened it and used it as my background. OLD Next I used a bracket sticker someone gave me last month NEW. In the centre of that I recycled a Christmas card OLD and finally, added some colour to the corner with a red tree. NEW

And over at the Tictactoe challenge

I've gone down the right hand side to make a bon voyage card.
The woodgrain came from a MME Miss Caroline packet of brads(recycling).
I wrapped the washi tape around and the card is square.

Christmas card in July, good for you! Great idea on using the packaging too.

Innovative way to upcycle the packaging and turn it into a wonderful bon voyage card. Glad to have you join us at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week!

How nice to get an early start on Christmas cards - I like that you used the packaging too!
