Photo Finish Holiday Card Challenge

By October 1, 2008Group Challenges

It's the first of October, which means I get the opportunity to share some amazing project ideas on behalf of our Senior Design Team Challenge!  The challenge this month is to create a Christmas/Holiday card that
incorporates photos. Pretty much everyone slips a photo inside their
holiday cards before they are inserted into the envelope, but why not see inspiration for really unique, beautiful ways to incorporate
them into the card design itself?

Lisa
Lisa Johnson tried her hand at printing her photo directly on our Shimmer White cardstock, which gave her fabulous results.  I am really looking forward to trying this out myself!

Lauren
Lauren Meader incorporated a keepsake calender into her project.  It is such a nice idea to provide suc a wonderful way for the photo to be displayed & enjoyed all year long!

Heathers_card
Heather Nichols played up the trendy office supply look by designing a special envelope for the cover of her card, which enclosed her adorable family photo.

………………………………………………………………………………………
Debbie
Debbie Olson utilized a fun interactive card design that doubles as a method of displaying the photo as if it were in a frame of some sort.  The transition from a flat piece of paper to a #D object ought to keep the recipient on their toes too!

………………………………………………………………………………………
Michelles_card
Michelle Wooderson shows you an amaing space saver by creating a pivoting tag combo for her card.  One little brad does the job perfectly!

………………………………………………………………………………………
Becky
Becky Oehlers used the Basic Grey magnetic closures to turn her photo into a special keepsake.There will be no need for this photo to be tossed away!

………………………………………………………………………………………
I can't think of any way to possibly be more inspired to get a headstart on holiday cards than the amazing projects the design team has shared with you today.  An idea and a little organization will help you on your way to getting those holiday cards done, and early as well!

    Hi, Nichole – just wanted to say thanks for a site that is tops for ideas and inspiration! You can’t imagine how many times I’ve “gone to the well” with your gift idea for personalized labels on Hershey’s Nuggets! I love the Papertrey Products, but your projects are always compatible with what I have on hand.
    My DH just left on a week-long hunting trip – so I’m planning on spending a little time here checking out the new projects;-)
    Thanks again
    Rosie
