CCT - Sketch ...

... Hello! Winter has come back to Northville. Just the right atmosphere for making Christmas cards! For the next couple of weeks over at Christmas Card Throwdown - CCT05 we have a fun sketch challenge for you. I think it's perfect for using up scraps of design paper (of which I've loads). Here's my card:

Peace, love, joy - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Home for Christmas; Stampin' Up Punches - Circle 1" and 1¾", Scalloped Circle - 2⅜"


There is no stamping on this card at all! I used up lots of the little bits of design paper that I've saved. I covered the base with the pretty foliage paper and used three co-ordinating pieces to created the stripes. I made the sentiment panel by punching more scraps and adding a simple greeting. I used dimensional tape to adhere the sentiment panel. On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper and on the white panel added a tag shaped greeting. This was so quick and easy to make. So much so, that I plan to make several more!!

I'm submitting this card to the new challenge at Jingle Belles - JB:17:05 where the team would like to see the Holly, the Ivy and any type of Christmas foliage - done!!

Do visit Christmas Card Throwdown to see more inspirational ideas from the rest of the Design Team.

oh my gosh! what a brilliant use of all the offcuts of pretty patterned papers that we can never bear to toss! plus of course i'm thrilled at how many kinds of holiday greenery you've incorporated for our "holly & ivy" foliage fun at JINGLE BELLES! <3

You have such a lot of pretty paper, I like this foliage very much. I suppose it calls to me as a gardener.
