The challenge is over at Holly Jolly to follow this sketch and must be a Christmas Project.
I am on a mission at the moment to upcycle as many of my old received christmas cards as possible. Some of them go back years!
I have had this piece of flocked cardstock in my stash every since my swap buddy Loly in America sent me this small 4" x5" bit of her favourite paper called Red Glitter Love Notes by Making Memories. Well it became my favourite too so only came out on special ocassions to be looked at, stroked and them put safely back again! Looking at the sketch I realised that I would only have to cut half a circle from it so I bit the bullet and made the cut.
I used bits from 2 different cards for the centre bar and the smaller circle which I have attached with foam pads for a 3D effect. The wording was part of the card and the plain red/gold card stock from my stash.
Close up below.
The really, really best part of this upcycling malarkey is that my stash lives to tell another tale
