Christmas Photo Card...Sara and Bubba Style!

As I wrote before, I participated in many swaps in September. One was a Christmas Photo Swap. When I designed the card, I was in love with my Big Shot (and still am). I wanted something simple. Anyone who is making photo cards needs a quick idea.


Stamps: Bold Snowflakes Jumbo Wheel, Heard from the Heart

Paper: Real Red, Whisper White

Ink: Whisper White Craft Ink

Accessories: White Taffeta Ribbon, Big Shot and Top Note Bigz Die, White Embossing Powder, Powder Pal, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch

I used White Craft ink in my uninked cartridge over the red paper. I then put the paper through the Big Shot to cut the frame out. I then inked and embossed white snowflakes on Real Red and then punched out the parts I liked using my 1 1/4 inch circle punch. I layered this circle on whisper white and added it to the frame. I tied a small knot around around the frame. The one I took pictures of was my worst bow! I sent the others to the swap. Finally, I added my picture to the frame (I had to trim a little) on a matte.

On the inside, I embossed the White Craft Ink with White embossing powder to so the sentiment popped!

On a side note, the picture is of my husband, Bubba, me, and the guys we take care of and that live with us. We are each wearing a Santa hat of the team of our choice: The Wisconsin Badgers (Go Big Red), the Chicago Cubs, the Chicago Bears, and, of course, the Raiders. We intended to send this picture as last year's Christmas picture, but never did. Maybe this year!


  1. Hey, I received this card in the swap. O loved it. I am definitely going to make a few with the scraps of the top note . I really like that idea. I also loved how your hats represented each of you and were pulled over your eyes. Too funny

  2. Really cute idea! I'm going to have to remember this one!

  3. This is a cute idea, I'll have to show this to my cousin she always makes their christmas card with their picture in it.
