When possible, I try to reuse paper products in my cards. (I also use other items, but that's another story) My hubby has fear of throwing out anything just in case I say "but I was going to use that!".
I was given a pile of past Shetland Sheepdog calendars to create something out of and decided on this series of cards.
Using a 1" square punch, I punched out the images I wanted from a 'puppy a day calendar'.
The punched images were then placed on cards fronts using images from magazines for the background. Sometimes I used a strip of paper to mat the images and sometimes not.
Then I add my greeting, decorate the inside and we're done!
