Good morning crafty friends

Today's card, as the header states, is an up-cycled one 

I have gone through a lot of my 'special' birthday cards (and hubby's too) and know that come the day he and I 'pop our cloggs' our sons will not be interested in the bundle of cards we've kept, so up-cycling it definitely is!  That said I have certain ones put to one side to add to my mini albums, I've contradicted myself there but you will know what I mean for sure

The card below is the original one, never thought to measure it before I cut it, it was larger than an A5 card which is what today's card is 

The cut parts were adhered to a black panel and I heat embossed the sentiment, punched two flowers, adhered those together and popped a pearl gem in the centre

The sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp set 

I am linking this to:

  5. Hi June this is a stunning card. I love it. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  6. It's lovely June, can't go wrong with butterflies, and a super job of recycling too, Kate x

  7. Such a great idea and a great result

  8. I'm new to your blog and getting a good laugh from your 'pop our cloggs' phrase! I have never heard that before, but I can certainly pick up the gist of it!
    Great idea for your up-cycled card, and I love the pretty sentiment too!

  9. Super card June, great upcycling. Certainly too beautiful a card not to use. xx

  10. Beautiful colouring and card

  11. What a wonderful idea to cut the card front into panels and make a whole new, beautiful design. I also have a stash of cards that were sent to me over the years, and many are too pretty to toss. Upcycling is a great way to pass on the beauty, isn't it?

  12. All for a bit of 'up cycling' - like you I have a little supply of cards that are too nice to throw away!! The colours in the card are just lovely!

  13. Butterflies make the perfect spring card and I love that you recycled this card. Although I keep the handmade cards that my mom made, and the cards that were sent to me when my babies were born, I have way too many to save. Recycling them into new cards makes great sense.

  14. A lovely upcycled card - I love upcycling too. Thanks for the chance to win this lovely stencil.

  16. Great idea June and it looks beautiful!

  17. I try and upcycle as many cards as I can too. I love this butterfly card and how you have transformed it. Hugs Mrs A.
