Repurposing Cards and Photos

I was very fortunate last year to receive a beautiful calendar that was created by my cousin, Doug, and his friend, Cathy.   They have been doing a great deal of outdoor living for a couple of years now  Their photos are spectacular to say the least.

Well, the year ended and I couldn't bare to throw the calendar away.   I decided to cut the photos out of the calendar and repurpose them by making them into cards.  The cards will be added to our box of cards for soldiers that will be shipped to a unit in Afghanistan next week.   The cards are blank inside so that the service men and women will have cards to send to their family and friends.

Here are some samples of Doug's and Cathy's photos that I repurposed as cards:

I have added in card stock to shadow plus ribbon, tiny card stock flowers, and pearls to accent many of the photos.   These have been attached to a card base.   Each card is shipped with an envelope.

Why not give repurposing a try too.   Think of photos, calendars, cards and so much more that you could embellish, add to, and change just a bit to create a beautiful brand new card.
