Upcycled Robin

Hi everyone.  I have a  simple Christmas card today made by upcycling one of last year's cards featuring a beautiful robin which I thought was too cute not to be reused.

All I did was to die cut the piece with a square stitched die and then die cut the red layer using a snippet of card with the next size up to make a mat for it and made a kraft card base on which I stamped a sentiment using Versafine Satin Red Ink heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.  

Thank you for your visit today and I'll see you again soon.

I am entering the following challenge: 

Rudolph Days February Challenge - Anything Goes.
Snippets Playground Challenge -  Where we use our snippets of card and paper etc.

An image which was certainly too good to throw out - looks good with the red and kraft you've used

A super piece of recycling Pat. I agree he’s a really gorgeous robin and deserves a new card to perch on.

I’m commenting on Sunday morning, so if you trampoline into the Playground treehouse, I’ll bring you over a nice mug of tea or coffee with a couple of hot buttered crumpets for brekkie! Xxx

A very clever idea, Pat. The image is too pretty to not use again and with your touch it is a new and beautiful card!

Absolutely right! That darling robin truly deserved to be upcycled and you did a really great job Pat. Love how perfectly the layers and also the red of your sentiment go so perfectly together!

Loving your upcycled robin make ... I always think it's such a waste to just check cards away at the end of the Christmas period so well done on repurposing yours. Looks great with the cheery red sentiment too

Happy Monday

Your upcycled robin card is so pretty. I hate to throw away perfectly good images too!

Much more fun to share the image in a new card.

Thanks for taking part in the Rudolph Days Challenge.
