So many photographs in this forum's challenge threads would make wonderful cards. Have any of you done that with your own photos from the challenges? Today I uploaded one from challenge #48: Sunrise Photo Card by Crafts. Any others?
[ETA: Your photo card examples don't need to be made with only challenge photos.]
I love using pictures on my cards because I can use a picture that will truly mean something to the person I am making it for. Here are a couple that I have made. The one with the mountains with the stamped bear is pretty much a cased card from somewhere here on SCS. They had used a beautiful stamped image but I used a photo from our mountains.

- when I noticed you'd revived the thread in the GST section, I linked a bunch in there. Not the mini album for my aunt, though. I was pleased myself with the seaside postcard one. Sadly Shirley died recently, but foxy67 now has the card.
Sabrina, about your spotlight effect: IC228 Magnolia by Cook22 .
Printing the same photo in two different scales is a neat idea. I was thinking it would also work with a sepia background and the center circle in full color.
I made this onea few years ago for my nephew's baptism. Used a picture of him on his actual Baptism day in b&w for the background behind the sentiment printed on vellum. It's pretty basic, but I love it because it's Jack...I mean, because it is so simple!

I've never thought of combining my photography and stamping, but it's an awesome idea! i checked out the ones you ladies posted and am totally inspired i can't wait till I get home so i can get to work on some. thanks for sharing, if any of mine work out i'll post them
These are very creative cards! I really like to print a photo onto white or cream Bazzill (textured) cardstock, then double mount that to the front of a card. I frequently print a sentiment via WordArt when I print the photo.
love these cards! I have thought about doing this, I have even taken pictures of things I would like to put into a card just not been that far yet. guess its like craft supplies I have to collect enough Photos first the assemble the cards, we all know how that goes..... we never have enough.... LOL
