Happy card repair

 Hi Everyone, I used the pieces of my cut out letters in repairing the card I put in the bin! The White letters and red background. I retrieved the card, ripped off the top layer, however quite a bit of the red ripped off too. Which meant I had to cover it or do I just throw it again?

 I decided to try and repair and this is what I did. I used the piece the letters were cut out of and after sticking the letters in place with red tape, they were stuck to the white card so it hid covered the red card. I stamped the sentiment and one retrieved card. It has turned out to be usable, which I'm surprised at, as I never retrieve anything it just stays in the bin, maybe next time I'll have to see what I can do? Thanks to you all for your great suggestions on the repair.

  12. What a great save Faith! No one would have been the wiser that this card was taken from the bin to be saved either! I love the ombre look of your "happy" words, you did it perfectly. So much better than mine. Yep, I am so loving that you saved this card and I think you should always try and see if you can save a card that you place in the bin. lol You just never know, you could come out with another winner like this one! Hugs, Brenda
