Recycled Wreath Christmas Card

Hello friends, thank you for stopping by! Today's card is a recycled card - a Christmas one as you can see.  I often recycle Christmas cards as they are too pretty to discard - they either become new cards or Christmas tags.  I do keep the handmade ones I receive - they are special and I appreciate the beautiful work and all of the love that has gone into them.

The beautiful wreath was popped up on a card front and so easy to remove. I popped it up onto an embossed card front that has been embossed on white card using the Spellbinders Flourish Stitch Em-bossing Fold'ers Quilt It by Lene Lok and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine – 6″ Platform.   Next it has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using  Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares. 

A double bow has been glued to the side of the recycled wreath and a recycled button glued to the centre of the bow with a Want2Scrap 250 Count - White Pearls adhered to the centre of the button.  

Textured twine has been tied around the card front and a little added around the button.  Finishing with a computer generated sentiment adhered to the right side of the card - slightly overlapping onto the side of the wreath.
