This week at Stampin Royalty week have a Sketch Challenge for you! I really like using sketches as a jumping off point, especially when my stamping Mojo has been running on empty,lol! I have been so busy getting ready for a Craft Fair this weekend that ist was Nice to just sit down and stamp a card. Be sure to check out what the Design Team came up with.
Here is the Sketch:
I actually CASE'd myself for this card from a card that I had made a few months ago for one of my Christmas classes. I used some of the same basic elements just shifted them to match the Sketch.
The card base is Marina Mist, and I then layered on a piece of Early Espresso. The Crumb Cake piece has been stamped with snowflakes from Northern Hearts (Level 1 hostess set) in Marina Mist, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Ink. I then used the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Folder on that piece to give it some more interest. The main image is Dasher (a great single stamp) and I stamped it on Very Vanilla with Soft Suede Ink and then matted it with a Soft Suede tag from the Two Tags Die.(The sentiment is from Many Merry Messages) I scalloped the end of the tag with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. (I also used this punch along with some Elegant Soireee DSP for the scalloped edge under the Crumb Cake layer) For the top of the tag I used some Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Marina Mist 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and a Silver Glimmer Brad.
In keeping with the Sketch, I chose to add a delicate snowflake for my embelishment. I cut the snowflake out using the Northern Frost Decorative Strip and Very Vanilla Textured Card stock. The edges were sponged with Marina Mist Ink and I then applied a generous amount of Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz (it is so pretty and shimmery in real life). To finish it all off, I popped a Rhinestone Jewel in the center.
Have a great day,
