Nearly through January already and it is time fo the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show our next makes. Christine chose the theme of True Meaning of Christmas. I received this card last year and as it was too good to just throwaway I decided to reuse here.
I didn't want to change the card too much just give it a new leash of life so I trimmed the card front down and attached to red card stock and then onto a cream cardstock base. Before attaching though I cut a large circle from the card around the figures and manager and then popped up on 3d stickers. It gives a nice dimension which you can just see in the sideways photo below.
The wording was a gold sticker from my stash and part of a longer sentiment which I cut down as shown.
Entering this card into the following challenges:
Beautiful recycled card, the popped circle looks great! I have a lot of commercial card in a large box to reuse, before or later I will get them out and have a go.

A beautiful card Mrs A. What a great idea, cutting a circle to give it some dimension.
Hope you are doing a bit of needle felting, for your Hare. How are you breaking your needles? I am lucky and not broken a needle yet, but have stabbed myself a few times!

I agree that scene was too wonderful to throw away.
Love your idea od decoupaging the circle cut into the design it gives it such depth and the wonderful backing matts set it all off perfectly.

This is so beautiful and a great save to repurpose a card and make it your own! It's always nice to see the real meaning of Christmas on cards too!
