Ever wonder what to do with those greeting cards you receive? Instead of just tossing them, why not recycle them? That's what we did for this month's chunky pages.
As I went through my stash of Christmas cards, I pulled out the ones that had the shiny foil features in red, gold, silver, etc. This would be my unifying element. I then used circle punches to create lots and lots of circles in a variety of sizes. It's so interesting to see how the different sized circles change the look of the original image! You know how you can't always recognize a common object when you look at it through a microscope? Same idea.
I selected 5 different sized circles for each of my pages. I arranged them in overlapping fashion to fit on the 4 x 4 chunky format. I secured the circles with two-sided tape to hold them in place while I free-motioned stitched around the circles. You will see that my back ground is a high-gloss silver cardstock. My thread is metallic gold. All of these elements help to tie my foil Christmas card circle punches together into one cohesive chunky page.
