Batch #2, AKA They Wanted to be Square Cards

That group of 4×4 images has been on my desk for quite some time.  I made them and loved them but really didn’t want to make square cards out of them.  I can’t tell you how many times I picked them up to work on them and put them back down again, but I was determined to use them up.  You saw yesterday that I tried to make them into that Operation Write Home sketch #154, but stopped after the first one because the width was too wide for and A2 size card.  So I decided to make 5x7s.  I got my card stock to make the card bases and cut all 11 of them.  But, my goodness!  Where was my brain??  I cut them
10 x 5!!  They obviously wanted so badly to be square, they messed with my mind while I was cutting, and I certainly wasn’t going to waste 11 sheets of good card stock, so square they are!!  (I will mail them in 5×7 envelopes, though!)

The papers are from Stampin’ Up Quilted Christmas pack and Love Nicole Yuletide paper pack.  The Christmas clip art is from the Christmas Traditions set from pcCrafter.  The polar bear is from the Cricut Joys of the Season cartridge.  I used the Avery Elle Burst Die.

That uses up all the 4x4s.  Thankfully!!  We’ll see if/when I have the gumption to tackle the rest of the pile . . .
