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.

Hanging Stockings

Wasn’t sure if a regular was going to get cards this year but on the 13th he called and needed 20 cards by the 16th. So I had about 10 on hand that I didn’t think he got last year so I plugged away for 2 days and got 10 more cards made. This is one of them…I made 2 with different stockings hanging…that is all I could make with the scrap that the stockings came from. The red polka dot and gray cardstock are also scraps. Trying to use them up but still can’t tell by looking at my overflowing scrap drawers! White rick rack and tiny brads from Paper Studio (didn’t think I would use the super mini ones but they are coming in handy).

CHALLENGES:
1) December Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com  – Color Challenge – use the colors provided. My shades are not exact but in the family.
2) December Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch #5. I felt something needed to hang in that space and what better than stockings!!  Original sketch is from MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #307 (MFTWSC307)

Cardstock: Bazzill (gray very old, White)

So Linda made the theme easy this month….Anything Christmas!!  I actually had product from last year when I tried to make a card and I didn’t end up liking the card that much. So I pulled out all the product I had cut or left over from it and decided to make new cards this year. So I came up with two different versions of the card. One uses a slightly bigger circle of Santa then the other.

I believe with bow

And this stocking was also printed out last year but never made anything with it. So I decided to use it up and make a circle card.
