A new week brings a new challenge. This week it was my turn & with Christmas just around the corner, what better challenge than to have a “Christmas Theme
“. Along with the sketch, a Christmas card was created. I am still not up to the number I want for my cards, so there will be another created later on in the week.
Base Card – Chocolate Chip – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 – Very Vanilla – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Cherry Cobbler – 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 – Chocolate Chip – 2″ x 4″ or 5cm x 10cm
Layer 4 – Very Vanilla – 1 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 4.5cm x 9.5cm
I embossed the piece of Cherry Cobbler using my Bigshot & Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots & adhered it to the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock.
I stamped my image onto Very Vanilla Cardstock
using StazOn Ink
& coloured with my Aqua Painter, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler & Chocolate Chip SU Markers
. I did intend using my Blender Pen
to colour the image, but didn’t realise I had used my Aqua Painter
until I had finished & saw the Blender Pen
sitting very neatly & patiently on my desk. Oh well, next time. I left the little bird in his natural state on purpose, as I think he looks better this way.
I run a piece of Ribbon along the bottom half of the piece of Cherry Cobbler, adhered the coloured image to the top with SU Dimensionals & adhered the whole lot to the base card – Chocolate Chip.
I again used my StazOn Ink to stamp the greeting onto Very Vanilla, coloured again using the same supplies as for my image, punched using the Curly Label Punch & adhered to the bottom of the image.
A really great sketch to create very fast, yet lovely Christmas Cards.
