It's a really fun sketch and so versatile, as you will see when you check out the rest of the DT samples. I chose to do minimal stamping for my card and let the DP do the work--I love it when it works out that way! The mechanics of this card are pretty obvious--but I'd like to point out that the bottom layer of Bravo Burgundy (here I go with more non-traditional Christmas colors!) was run through my Cuttlebug with my new Victorian embossing folder for a little interest. The patterned paper is from a mat stack I got last year by Me and My Big Ideas called Noel. I punched the corners with my Ticket Corner punch and added some flat back pearls to the base elements. The sentiment is from Fourishes' Holiday Greetings set, stamped on Whisper White with Bravo Burgundy ink and cut/embossed with a Nestabilities die. Then I went around the embossed edge with a Copic marker to match Mellow Moss and again right on the paper edge with a marker to match Bravo Burgundy. Some burgundy ribbon and more pearls complete the sketch. Simple but a bit elegant, I'm thinking. And easy. What a combination, right? Add another Christmas card to my stash :)
NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of the Crazy4Challenges team!
