Getting Sketchy with Completely Christmas

Sweet Song of Christmas

So if you have been to Completely Christmas Challenge or if you go there now you will see that I did not follow the sketch they displayed.

I followed a sketch just a different one. Long story but that is what happens when life and technology get in the way!!

The story behind this card is that I did a card a year or so ago with this image for the retirement home I do crafts at. I had left over pieces so I make them and sell my cards at work. Well I had 3 card bases with the sentiment “May the sweet song of Christmas bring joy to your heart!” already printed inside, brads and a couple pieces of cut paper but not enough to make the original card. I didn’t want to cut up more supplies to make the exact card so I set it aside. So when we got the (wrong) sketch I thought it would work for this image so I pulled out the pieces. I thought I found the perfect patterned paper for it but when I went to play with the pieces last night I decided I didn’t like it. So I pulled out the scrap drawer and found the green patterned paper and it matched perfectly. So that is how this card was made.

I used Christmas Cuties Digital Stamp from Deedee’s Digis.

December Card Class

Leave a comment

I have already shown 2 cards we made in card class but here are the other 2 cards.

Joy to the World

This is a card I did for the card class I teach. I wanted an angel Christmas card so I asked my wonderful husband to draw me an angel and this is what he came up with! He designed it after our niece Kailee. I picked the colors and then made the card around the angel.

Challenge:
1) Dec Card Challenge – Favorites Category. I used Deconstructed Sketch #129 that I had saved in my favorites.

SantaReindeer

This is one of the cards that I designed for the card class I teach. I used a paper pack from Hobby Lobby for the Santa Image.
The design was inspired by a sketch and card that are very similar.
Dec Card Sketch Challenge – sketch #3
and a card I found on etsy that I saved in my favorites. http://www.etsy.com/listing/115461831/happy-birthday-card-masculine-birthday

Hark the Herald Angels Sing….

Hark the Harold Angels

Hark Angels Sing

My good friend Judy loves Angels and that is what her Christmas tree decorations are done in. So I wanted to make her a special card for her. The first card was made for her and she should be getting it this week. I had some supplies left over so I decided to make one of the ladies at the retirement home a Christmas card. She is dear to me and an angel in my life so I thought these images were also fitting for her.
