More Xmas cards

My mother and I have been going crazy upcycling the old Christmas cards into new ones.  Some are really difficult, like photo cards.  The ones my mother hates the most are foiled cards.  Here are three cards that I made from one foiled card - the scans are not great, because the foil doesn't scan well, but you will get the idea.

The card featured three Santa ornaments in blue, red, and green.  At first, I thought I would only use the red, because I'm a stickler about such things.
It wasn't much of a remake - I just cut a rectangle out of the card front, and layered it up.  I hated to see the other two Santas go to waste, though.  I tried fussycutting them:

The sentiments are leftovers from other cards.  I don't think any of these cards are particularly great, but my mother thinks they are good for a dollar.  Whatever.  It's about keeping them out of the landfill another year, I suppose.

That's the way I see it too. Keep it out of the land fill. I agree with your mom. I think your cards are very sweet!

I have a ton of cards which I've hoarded for many years now... I have to do something with them. Any thoughts?
