Recycled Merry Christmas

In for a penny, in for a pound. I'm biting on Bah! Humbug! Challenge 1-Recycling! and not only this challenge, but they have also issued a Loyalty Challenge for the rest of the year with prizes to be had for all of us challenge junkies who'll try to hang in there with making Christmas cards all year long.
The tree and 2 layers it is glued to, I cut off a Christmas card one of my SIL's gave us for Christmas. One of the girls at her church made them, so I didn't feel like I could put created by me on my photo, so I put Re-Created. I've seen this Christmas tree fold before so I know it's not original to her. I didn't totally steal it. The funny thing is my card doesn't look like the one I cut apart, just by attaching those layers to a red card and stamping the Merry Christmas below with star stickers, it's good to go again, but not to the SIL. :-)
Supplies: Red Card Blank 5 1/2" X 4" Halcraft, Papers: from recycled card, Stamp: Clearly Wordsworth V007 Carolers, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, Mrs. Grossman's stickers.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G

I totally LOVE this and love the recycling idea! What a nifty idea--making one Christmas card a week would give me almost 50 cards by Christmas (okay--it's late and I can't do the math in my head LOL) Teach me the tree fold sometime, okay?

I love this card - that tree folding is fantastic. I have seen it before but never got round to trying it. I really must as it is just so effective. We might even have it as a challenge on Bah! Humbug! one week as it would be lovely to see how everyone's cards turn out.
Thank you for joining us this week and for enticing your friends along too - much appreciated. Good luck in the draw and I hope we'll see you entering loads of our future challenges.

Hi Beverley,
I have also seen this origami tree before and intended to have a go but never quite got around to it. Maybe this year!
Thank you for supporting us in our new adventure at Bah! Humbug! and I hope you will continue to be a regular visitor to our challenges over the coming year.
