{ICAD} and a Repurposed Card

A few days ago, someone asked on an online forum what people did with RSVP cards from their weddings or their children's weddings. Most responded, "Toss them." Well, I still have a stack myself from my daughter's wedding in June. I couldn't toss that beautiful, heavy paper. So, I have decided to repurpose them to make cards for people.

Today I wanted to show you my first repurposed card. My daughter's dearest friend in medical school asked if I could make her a card. So this is what I have made for her. I also created an ICAD at the same time for myself. I will stamp the date on the tab when I use it. It's super easy to create two things at once instead of reinventing the wheel.

For the back of the card, I covered it in book paper, added some gesso, and I will write her a personal note on the back.

As for the supplies I used, here is a photo of most of what I used. The Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground is new to me. I love it! The ability to use my watercolors and then cover in matte medium is awesome. It gives it such a great, great texture too. I hope you find this supply photo helpful!

So, what do you have laying around that you can repurpose? Grab it, and have fun creating! Have a blessed Sunday!

I feel the same way about using and re-using what is already available, and your results are beautiful!

Merry Christmas, Patter! Thank you for all you make, teach , do, share, and write.
