Challenge #18

The challenge for this week at Bah!Humbug! is to be green. Either by recycling, or to literally use the color green. As it turns out, I was able to do both. I had a Christmas card I received last year from a family member stashed away with some of the other cards we got in the mail. There were several parts of the original that were used: HO HO HO tags, stockings, and snowflake printed cardstock. I took the thing apart and re-arranged it differently on a green card base. The printed cardstock was cut into 2 pieces to use as top and bottom borders and I added some narrow satin ribbon from my stash to the sides. All in all, I think it's a cute card and it was pretty easy to put together. It also is to be used for CHNC's challenge this week, which was to use a photo inspiration (the stockings in the photo were my inspiration).
I hope you like it. Thanks for looking.


  1. Well done. I always 'rescue' bits from cards I receive but I don't always get around to actually using them, so it's nice to be given a nudge to do so. A nice, bright card. Kate x

  5. Hi Ruth ,
    Phew ... It's taken me a while but I got here in the end to see your submission for our Going Green Challenge. Love your recycled card and double well done for managing to include our other option of using the colour green too. I especially like how you have used the text at varying heights to hang your stockings from. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
