Another Sunday, another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

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.

I have been crafting with paper for several yrs. now. I am a single mother of four grown children (2 boys, 2 girls) and a grandmother of 6 (5 girls and 1 boy). I still work as a hairdresser part time at a beautiful retirement community in San Ramon, CA My passions are: gardening, sewing and crafting with paper while watching my favorite TV shows. I have an amazing dog named Shelby who I just can't imagine life without. I hope, with this blog, that I will inspire, teach, prevent costly mistakes in your journey and well, just have a lot of fun creating.
