Three cards out of one

Last February I made a multi-fold easel Christmas card, but it didn't get used and I wasn't that keen on  it, so didn't see any point in keeping it. But there was no way that I was going to discard it so I decided to take it to pieces and use most of those pieces along with other bits from my offcuts box to make three new cards.

This is the original card and you can read about it here:

And here are the three cards I made:

This is for:

  4. I'm always in favour of a little selective recycling and stash busting!
    Great cards!

  5. Gorgeous - I especially love the holly berry paper on the second snowman card - it's beautiful!
    All three cards are brilliant... what a great save from something you weren't keen on!
    I've just popped over from Pixie's place to say "hello!",

  6. I'm sorry Hazel, but I have a challenge limit rule on Rudolph Day now . . . 5 additional challenge entries only. As you've entered 16 I'm afraid I will have to remove your entry from my own challenge.

    If you make another Christmas card before the end of the month and only enter it to a max of 5 other challenges, I'd love to see you enter again.

  7. Wow, three cards from one - that's great going. I also love the holly backing paper - perfect! Hugs, Di xx
