My customer and friend, Gail (remember Iris Folding) shared yet another new idea. Here's what her note said (with a tiny bit of editing) and then the finished product:
…what can be done with an old card to recycle it. The light green base is the back of the old card folded in half. The bar code [personalized stamp we all like to put on the back of a card] is on the inside so it won't show, so actually the light green was on the inside of the back of the original card. The plastic Irish Blessing was glued to the front of the original and I took it off and punched a hole in it for the ribbon. The rest is punched out of the front of the old card and the leaves are from the green envelope using the "Little Leaves" Stampin' Up! die cut. Plus I embossed the front with my Cuttlebug.
