How to decorate your Greeting Card Album for Christmas and recycle a card from last year with a fabric die cut

Super Crafty Christmas Greeting Card Album with a recycled Christmas card craft.

I went at this with a "just play" attitude. I gathered up some of my favorite supplies and just started punching, stamping, gluing and glittering to decorate the Greeting Card Album and I also recycled a greeting card. I started by stamping all over the cover with some deer stamps, Some Stampology Clear stamps-Flourishes V.2 by Rhonna Farrar and used StazOn Ink.

One of the things I had in my stash was a bunch of slides that weren't good (the picture was too dark) and I wondered if you could punch them? Yup you can! I inked the edges a bit and glued it onto the cover of the Card Album.
I added touches of glitter by mixing a bit of Crafty Chica glitter with a bit of Judikins Diamond Glaze and applying it with a tooth pick.
To make my reindeer I die cut them from holiday prints of Autumn Leaves papers and simply glued them onto the cover all over.
To make the recycled embellished card I ironed some heat and bond to the back of some scrap plaid fabric and ran it through the Sizzix die cutter with my reindeer die. Then I simply ironed it onto the card, I used a press cloth and a tiny tipped iron.

Well I hope you like today's craftiness and if you are looking for a place to store all this year's Christmas cards grab yourself a Greeting Card Album and go to town. Oh and if you are looking for that perfect gift that your recipient won't have already-The Card Album is the ticket.
