A Cracker of a Card

Hi, it's Lindsey here from the Uniko DT with a little "upcycling" inspiration for you!

I've used the card leftover from 2 Christmas crackers for my cards. 
The patterned glittery card was too good to throw away!
 I'm sure I'm not alone in the crafting community of hoarding lovely snippets of paper and card ...

My first card uses the upcycled card die-cut to provide a background for my the Uniko snowflake die set.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Simply Said Blocks set.

Quick, easy and simple is what I'm after for making a batch of Christmas cards!

For my second card, I stamped the bauble from the Christmas Sparkle stamp set onto the upcycled card and then "fussy cut" it out.

These cards would be perfect for the current Uniko challenge; we're looking for celebratory cards, with the optional twist of gold - and what better occasion to celebrate than Christmas?!

If you'd like to enter a card in this month's challenge, and why wouldn't you?  There's prizes to be had! You can link your card up HERE.  The challenge finishes on 21 December and winners will be announced on 4 January.

I look forward to seeing your cards in the gallery!


  1. No, you are definitely not alone, there are at least two of us, lol...;) I always look at packaging real closely and have tons of scraps... Love what you did with you pretty ones! Thanks for the idea!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous cards, Lindsey! I, too, 'collect' pretty bits-and-pieces of various papers/packages...just have to remember to use them! What you've done here is wonderfully inspired and inspiring!
