Sentimental Sunday Challenge #188 Make it new or Alter something

Happy New Year to everyone. This week here at Sentimental Sundays
we were to Make it New Or Alter something.. Well this is not my
best talent but came up with an idea that I will be continuing in the future.
 We all have those
birthday cards, Christmas cards, Anniversary and so on, just either laying
around  or in boxes and drawers. So, I took and old birthday card
and made it my own. Here goes.

What I did was cute the old card apart. Placed this striped background onto
a new card base. Next I added the lower portion as seen below.

These cakes are popped up for demention. Next I cut out
the Birthday sentiment and added it to the top left corner
as seen below.

The striped strip was along the bottom of the old card and I
liked it so decided to add.. and the final touch is the border
strip that I punched out with my Martha Stewart Star.

I think for  my first attemp at altering something it
turned out pretty well. I hope you are inspired to cute
those old cards apart and make new ones from them..
I know I will be

 Happy Scrapin.


  1. Happy New Year and welcome to the Sentimental Sundays family.
    you have really inspired me with your card this week. I have never thought of redoing any of my cards, let alone making a new out of an older one. After seeing your project, I know that it can be done and beautifully too!!

  2. Really great idea - I always feel bad putting old cards in the bin, maybe I'll give this a go instead!!
