Makeover Monday Video Tutorial- Happy Mardi Gras Card

Happy-mardi-gras-card-1It's that time of year and Mardi Gras parades and celebrations have begun so today's makeover card is dressed in style with the colors of the season!  Purple (Elegant Eggplant) represents justice, green (Old Olive) represents faith and gold (Daffodil Delight) represents power.
Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday which is the day before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent.
You can see other Mardi Gras projects that I've created here with this treat and here with this decorative banner which is hanging on my back door.

Today's cardmaking project is a re-make of a Christmas card from a little over a year ago.  Looking through my older creations, I often find inspiration to make the card in a "new" way.  It's fun and is an easy way to get started when creating.

Let's take a look at the video from the past and you can see how easy it is to transform or makeover a card.
