I had a birthday order that was Christian theme, likes yellow and bright colors. So I found a Christian saying that the lady liked and then set out to make the card. I was struggling so I went to My Princess-peaces’ gallery as she is the “lift” category of the March Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. I lifted this card.
Since there is more bling on this card then I usually use I’m going to enter this one into the Product category – bling, shine, etc. I lifted another one of her cards that I will enter into that category.

So here is the 2nd card using the “Away in a Manager” paper pack from The Paper Studio. I used sketch #1 in the September Card Challenge as my inspiration…just flipped so the circle was on top of the card instead of on the bottom.
I have enough paper I think I will get about 12 of these cards made.
1) September Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – sketch #1. Original sketch found here http://sugarpeadesigns.com/blog/2016/05/11/sugarsketch-53/
2) Christmas in September @ Scrapbook.com – make a Christmas card.
3) Sparkles Christmas Challenge Challenge #68 – Christmas Fairies or Angels.
Cardstock: Bazzill (Nelly),
Gold Paper: The Paper Studio (Antique Gold Metallic)
Patterned Paper: The Paper Studio (Away in a Manger)
Accents/Tools: Cricut, Basic George Cricut Cartridge (2″ and 2 1/4″ circles), Cuttlebug embossing folder, 1/16 EK Success pop dots
So in trying to figure out what I liked best I made this one too. I think I would rather have the angel facing to the right but I think for one card this works too!

I was so excited to see The Paper Studio come out with a Christian Christmas Paper pack. Since I’m not a traditional stamper I’m always on the lookout for Christian Christmas stickers or papers. I wasn’t sure if I could use this piece of the pack because of how big the scene was but I was able to capture enough in a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 card. I then used the triple matte technique…instead of stamping the design I used paper with a design on it. I then cut out the star from the original big piece and place it 3d on here.

Dec 1st Deedee’s Digis sponsored Feeling Sketchy Challenge #134 which was this sketch:
I wanted to make a sample and play along so I started looking through Deedee’s Digis Christmas images because I need one more religious card for this year. When I saw the Wise Men Digital Image I thought it could work with this sketch. In my mind the words would take the place of the other stars. I had just bought a new size of envelope for money cards but thought the size would work for this too…the size of the card is 3 1/2 x 7 1/4. I never got the card done in time for the challenge but I did get it done in time for some orders I had! I was very thankful because the 3rd customer saw an error I had in my scripture so I only had to fix 5 cards…very thankful!

I needed two more religious cards this season and had an ideal to use 3 wise men image for one but I wasn’t sure on the 2nd one. So I went looking through my digital stamps and came across this one by Diane’s Daydream Design (store closed in 2014). Then I remembered an awesome sketch posted in the December Card Sketch challenge on scrapbook.com. Then I remembered the color combo from last month on the Nov Card Challenge that I didn’t get to so I decided to use it on this card. So with those 3 elements in mind I went to work and this is what I came up with!! A little modern but the focus is still on Jesus…our true gift at Christmas. I made a red background version and then also made a teal background version.
The paper used for the circles is actually a digital paper (also discontinued at Diane’s Daydream Designs) I printed on Bazzill white. Then I just used circle punches and went to town. So I will also enter into the Dec Card Challenge – product category – use something digital.
