Yeah, another Sunday, another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here’s this weeks sketch:
I wanted to do a Christmas theme but not necessarily with traditional Christmas patterned paper. I had this cute stamp in my collection that I wanted to use. It reminded me of one Christmas when I had made a wreath for my front door and a couple of days later discovered that a cat had torn it apart during the night. I chose to use a brown scrap of paper that has a wood grain to it to sort of give a suggestion of a door. Hence the circle would be the door wreath even though it’s offset to follow the sketch. The completed card measures 5.5″ x 7″.
I started by stamping and then coloring the image with Copic markers. Then I cut the image into a circle with a nested circle die and another circle one size up in red. The tags were first typed on my computer and printed out on white cardstock. I then used tag dies centered over the text and cut and embossed them. The “Merry Christmas” text was cut with my Silhouette machine. I then assembled the card according to the “sketch challenge” image and added some red rhinestones to the tags.
