Recycling To Make a Valentine!

Hi, guys! Today I am sharing a Valentine I made for my friend Christine to give to her husband.  They are a family of 3, so I incorporated 3 hearts, the small one to represent their young daughter.  The hearts were actually cut from a Christmas Card I received that I loved.  It was pretty and the patterns on it were many, so I didn't want to just toss it.  What a fun way to repurpose something!

Paper: Desert Storm Cardstock
Ink: Unicorn White
Misc.: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Heart Punches, Oval Scallop Punch

I really like the way the background came out by using the Unicorn White ink on the embossing folder (faux letterpress technique).

Hope you have a great day!

I like saving and repurposing pretty Christmas cards too. It seems like such a waste just to throw them away. I love the new card you made out of them. So pretty! And thoughtful, especially with the little heart representing the daughter. ~Xiomara of Equis Place

Such a fabulous card and so creative to use something that you have to create it.

Great way to recycle and I have a lot of pretty papers myself which I would love to reuse. Thanks for the the idea and I think I'll try it out! Fabulous card too btw! :)

Nothing wrong with recycling! Love the card and the hearts!

That's such a smart idea! (I hope to do something similar since I saved most of the "fronts" to our wedding cards, but as of yet I just have a big pile of colored cardstock!)
