Three from One (Papier Tole)

Well, I've gotten a lot of my old cards used up this past month as I made various Christmas cards. I LOVE using Papier Tole for the focals, but they can be sort of expensive - often $1 per card, even on sale.  This first card is an example of a Christmas set I got.

 I used the extra art for the inside of the card.

As I thought more about it, I decided to be a bit more frugal.  Instead of just making one card per papier tole picture, I made all THREE of these cards from ONE.  By picking and choosing, I was able to take some of the parts that would ordinarily add dimension to one picture, to make a second dimensional picture:

 Then I used the extra art piece as a focal for a third card.
