Wait!! Don't Throw That Away!

You know this card business can become obsesive! We went to Costco this afternoon and the other half bought a jug of peanuts. When he opened the lid and peeled the perfectly clean seal off, I said 'don't toss that in the garbage I can put it through my Cuttlebug'. Well I think he's getting used to these statements, he just calmly handed it over. It was a perfect circle and backed by a heavy weight white glossy back. It went through the Cuttlebug like butter and the embossing was deep and nice.


I cut a half inch slit all around the perimeter and wove a ribbon through it, added some pop dots and adhered it to the front of my card. The cardstock is from the new DCWV Holiday Collection. I embossed a couple of snowflakes from a set of Christmas Memory Makers stamps on the front, inked the edges and added a square of paper inside. I cut a strip of the cardstock and ran it through my Bug with the snowflake embossing folder and added it to the bottom of the inside.

I like how my trash to treasure turned out!!
