Good morning! Well, this week is moving along rapidly. I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already. It will be Christmas before you know it. Time to finish up those cards and get started on making some gifts! I have a question for you, what do you prefer: a store bought gift, a gift card or a handmade gift? Please leave me a comment to let me know!
My post today is for the Paper Craft Crew. This week we have a sketch…
A fun paneled sketch! My card starts off with a base of Crumb Cake Card Stock. The background uses a piece from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. The Cherry Cobbler piece to the left is stamped with the Timber Stampin’ Around Wheel in Cherry Cobbler. I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla with the “Vintage” Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to go to the side of that. The stamped image is from the “Vintage” Jolly Old St. Nick Stamp Set. The snowman is stamped in Basic Black Ink and then colored in with Basic Gray, Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Markers. I punched him out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch and backed him with a piece of Crumb Cake that I cut out with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzilit. Both pieces are adhered together with SNAIL and then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Merry Christmas is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and the one end is flagged. A flower form the Boho Blossoms Punch in Cherry Cobbler backs a Natural Designer Button with some Linen Thread tied in a bow. That is adhered with a Mini Glue Dot to the left of the flagged greeting. I really like the Jolly Old St. Nick Stamp Set, the images are perfect for some older looking Christmas Cards. I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge. Thanks for checking in and don’t forget to leave a comment on your favorite gift! Have a productively amazing day!
