I have been upcycling and reviving some 'pre-loved' Christmas cards! That is to say, salvaging elements from old cards that have been rescued from the recycling bin, or donated by relatives, and jazzed up in various ways.
The festive border on this one was painstakingly snipped and mounted on black card, which was also snipped to leave a smart border around the frame, on a 6" x 6" square card blank. The lovely greeting in the middle is a stamp from Inkylicious: 'Christmas Wishes' #3170.
Red gems from stash decorate the 'I's in the greeting and the bows in the corners of the frame.
