Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

I took a break from re-working that wedding card I posted on Monday to do the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers. This was fun sketch. I wasn't going to do a winter card but I had the photos sitting out and thought I'd give it a try. It's cute but nothing I would do for Christmas cards. I would have to cut out the top part, the snowman face from each photo using a x-acto knife and cutting very carefully and straight too! Something I could do but to do 130 of them I can pretty much guarantee you that about 80 of them will not be SO straight anymore!!! And think of the cramps in the hand!!! For this one I used two photos so I didn't have to cut out the center of the photo. But to do that many Christmas cards I would have to be a bit more frugal!! SO I just did the one for the Wednesday challenge at SplitCoast.

And then I made another one. The "To Have and to Hold" set was the one I had in mind when I saw the sketch. I was hoping the bride and groom would fit in the other direction but they didn't so I had to turn the card. My first thought with this was, had the bride and groom gone the other direction was to put the Mr. on one side of the couple and the Mrs. on the other side where that strip that goes through the middle is. But it didn't work out that way and this is what I came up with. I am still toying with the idea of doing the Mr. & Mrs. in a circle, layering it and adding it to the bottom right corner of the bride and groom piece.

I was SO fortunate to be able to play with the sketch and make two. This is the first time I've ever made two on the same day and two different ones at that!!!

Tomorrow I will pick another of the ideas that were left in the comment section on Monday's card and re-do the card with that suggestion.

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

Great winter card - very cool! Your wedding card is gorgeous - wonderfully soft colors, and how fun to turn it sideways.

BTW...I really like the bride & groom card...very elegant.

That snowman card took me by first glance I thought you had found a new use for a marshmellow :)
