One Image Two Cards

In my quest this year to use up things that I have around I found these two images in my stash already colored and ready to go. I used the same sketch on both but just different scraps of paper. Yeah, more of my scraps gone (but tons of stuff left to use! LOL!)

Both of these cards were super easy and very fast to make. The background is a scrap of Basic Grey paper. The border is from my new Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop border. I used two of the three borders on this one. Matted the image on another scrap still laying on my desk from the pinwheels from yesterday and rounded the corners. Super fast and easy. I am entering this card into the CAS-ual Friday challenge: 10 minute craft dash!

The second card uses the same image but I gave it a vintage look.

The background paper is a scrap that I repurposed from another card. I backed that with a black border on a white card base. I used the same Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop border but I used the third border on this one. I distressed the edges of the image and the edges of the black card stock backing. I am not very good at vintage and this is about as good as it gets when it comes to vintage. LOL! I am entering this card into these challenges:
I love short work weeks! Looking forward to the weekend. Hope your week is going smoothly. Thanks for stopping by!

You are spot on with your darling cards and being versatile with using the image several times. It saves time and keeps you juices flowing all the time. I just finished 3 cards with the vintage telephone I'm going to post tomorrow but one being manly and the other feminine. You know how I love my Doodle Pantry images. And, this is special because it was a gift...haha
