Crafting Cutting Crew October Challenge - Simply Crafty SVG Prize

October's challenge over at The Crafty Cutting Crew's Facebook Page was sponsored by Simply Crafty SVG'S. The prize was a Simply Crafty SVG gift card. The challenge was to use one of Simply Crafty SVG'S files to create a Christmas project.

I decided on one of the free files to work with, a swing card.

My cards:

I won the challenge and had fun spending my gift card. One of the files I picked was this Christmas Double Fold set.


I used up some brads that I have had around forever on the closing bands.
I wanted to add a splash of color to the ornament card so I put a few jewels here and there. I got the sentiment stamp from Hobby Lobby it was in the clearance pile.

Another Hobby Lobby clearance stamp.

I have a few odds and ends jewels to use up because I just ordered a whole bunch more so I used some of the Christmas leftovers on the inside Christmas tree. The sentiment stamp was one of the ones in the grab bag I had ordered from Unity Stamps last week. I just love the font.
I managed to use a few scraps but I am afraid that as usual I made more scraps than I used.
There are still a few more files I need to play with from this great prize but real life is getting in my way and I need to get a few things done including my Christmas cards and some door drafts to whip up on the Serger if I can remember how to use it.
I am entering these cards into this challenges:
