February Stash Challenge with 52CCT

It is that time of month for the stash challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  This week our stash of the month is all that recycled stuff you have laying around.


IMG_4865As for me I pulled out this dictionary that I have been slowly recycling for some time and peeked to see if I still had the page with the definition of Christmas on it.

IMG_4868Guess what, I did find it.  In fact the word chrismas was the header.

IMG_4866I then tore up the remaining page and glued it down to a piece of 4.25×5.5 piece of cardstock with some vintage college medium from Tim Holtz.

IMG_4867I add a bunch of crackle gel and then sprayed down the paper with Tea Stain, Antique Linen Distress Ink Spray and some Bronze Perfect Pearls Mist.

IMG_4870I distressed edges with some Distress Crayon in Walnut Stain and add some stamped tree branch images from Inkadinkadoo.  Finally I added a ribbon and added a few red gems to finish the card off.

IMG_4871My recycled project became a true mix media card, but the perfect Christmas card for the right person.

I can’t wait to see how you play with this fun stash challenge.  Until then, happy crafting.
