Cute Cards from Journaling/Photo Cards

Christmas Tree with buttons

I had this image on my desk with buttons that I pulled for it earlier in the year but never made a card with it. I needed a card for a regular customer so I thought this image would work perfectly. This image is from a paper pack I bought a couple years ago. It has several journal cards with images on them. I ended up using several this year to make quick cards. I used Freshly Made Sketches #268 for my inspiration.

So Tuesday after my root canal I decided to clean up a pile on my craft room floor. In doing so I made this card. When trying to come up with ideals last month if I saw a sketch that sparked an ideal I set it aside with the product that I thought would work with it. This was one of those so I made it instead of putting the stuff away. The JOY was actually on a journaling card that came with the paper pack but the patterned paper it was on was not clicking for me. So I cut the JOY out and put it on solid paper and liked it a lot better. The sketch that inspired this card was Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #289.
I turned the sketch on it’s side.

So last year I found one sheet of each of this paper and decided to buy it even though I struggle using the journaling cards. Since everything is on there sometimes I feel the card is too plain. But I decided to see how many I could make up in one night and I made 5!! I will post the others later but this one was inspired by Anna’s card as part of the April Inspirational Card Challenge so I wanted to post it. Thanks Anna for the inspiration!!
