Some more up-cycling

A few weeks ago a friend of mine wonderfully thought of me before chucking out some card samples she had from an old business venture ... And after an evening of chopping them up I have ended up with a big pile of things to be made into other cards... Most of these will be gifted on to others to use, and some kept for me but wanted to share a few already made up...

Card one: part of a card chopped up and mounted on the blue card with some silver ribbon and then some enamel and glossy accents added to little features on the dresses.

Card two: part of the same original card as in card one! This time mounted on a panel with a punched edge, then on silver card with a stripe of the lavender and the addition of the pink flower with the jewelled button centre.

Card three: a glossy card this time simply put with some glitter card on a blue card base. I think the beautiful flowers stand on their own and needed very little adornment.

Card four: again from the same card as above but a different part of the floral arrangement this time with the addition of a doily base and some sequinned flowers on a soft blue card blank.

Card five: Well this card has already been given to princess m's grandad. I know it's not a masculine card in anyway but he bought m a NetBook for her birthday so the image was perfect as his thank you card! The original card was just chopped into the smaller image and mounted on patterned pink papers and the ribbon on the front added the final touch. Then mounted on the gold card blank. Not at all Grandad's style but perfect from little princess m!

Nearly there ...

Card six: Again very little needed for this cute image! Mounted it with the organza ribbon and the sentiment panel raised up on pads onto the beautiful scalloped edge card blank, and two gems added ... Job done!

Last one!

Card Seven: this was a simple on again with just some coordinated paper, a doily and some paper flowers on a soft blue card stock. Cute and simple!

Hope you liked a little look around my up cycled cards!
