I have had some very pretty commercial Christmas cards in my stash for some time and the other day decided to see what I could do with them.  

The two deer cards started out as a trifold card which I cut apart - the trees and the large deer are from the original card - I added snowbanks, the black deer, card base and the Nuvo drops snowflakes.  The glitter holly is the upcycle part - I cut out a branch, arranged it all on a card base, added the red berry Nuvo drops.  In the second photo, the bottom left card was just mounted on some fun foam and then added to the card base - I added the glitter dots.  The ornament card just had the vellum sentiment added, and the embossed part of the top card was put on a gray card base and I added the glitter snowflake and gold star in the center - sentiment is on the inside on that one.
That's all for today - thanks for stopping by.
