Just Christmas and Birthday Cards ~ Sketch 7 & 8

Challenge 8, created by Janina, used elements I'd never combined before. At first I thought how could I use 4 brads and 4 eyelets on one card? And how could I make photo corners work with everything and a textured base? I love being stretched creatively in this way and am very pleased with my result. This stamp is adorable. It is silly and so true! This is a perfect card for a man this time of year... Darn Lights!

Be sure to stop by JCBC and post your take on this challenge. We've got some fun prize giveaways this month so be sure to check in on us often! Have a wonderful holiday~

Cuttlebug folder used: A2: Snowdots (inked with Sky Blue pigment ink)
Border punch: EK Success snowflake, then cut to fit corners
Stamps: Uptown Rubber Stamps (Darn Lights), Inkadinkadoo snowflakes
Inks: Colorbox pigment inks: Chestnut Roan and Sky Blue and Chalk: Ice Blue
Misc: Brads, Eyelets


Challenge 7, created by Mada, was a really fun sketch. I love the simplicity of the sketch. You can dress it up or keep it simple and it will still look great! Here is my take for a Birthday card using my favorite Mary Engelbreit papers and a sticker. I feel like this is totally cheating but it worked too perfectly!

All papers are generic cardstock or Mary Engelbreit
Cuttlebug A2 folder: Bloom Dots
Other: Mary Engelbreit stickers

Oh, boy! That Birthday card is totally awesome! Thank you for making my sketch look so good. :)

Gorgeous papers and they match the cuttlebug strip to perfection. The 'Art-deco' ;) sticker is gorgeous.

Love the Christmas card too! Your colouring is great and the corners underline the card very beautifully.

Hugs,
Mada

This snowman is really cute - and you did a great job using this sketch! I like how you attached the papers with brads and eyelets. And I never knew how to use those corners - you teached me and I will try it for sure!
