Freshly Made SKetches

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Hi there! Are you ready for a holiday!? Not me...ha ha:-D Still shopping...
I finally mailed my holiday cards out yesterday, but needed one more so I went to Freshly Made Sketches to get some ideas...

Very interesting...isn't it? This is why I love this challenge, I would never come up with a sketch like this on my own!

Silent Night is my favorite Christmas song:-) I heat embossed it with the Gold Emboss powder and trimmed it in a shape of a tree. I thought the strip of the Music Notes Wheel Stamp would go perfectly with this:-) This card is pretty neutral, so I added the Cherry Cobbler flower and a row of pearls.

Here is the inside. I dipped the tree and the star stamps in the Crumb Cake Ink Pad then stamped on my Grid Paper twice before stamping on my card to get this very light, soft image.

My Notes...

Stamp set: Evergreen, More Merry Messages, Music Notes Wheeler
Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Champagne Glimmer Paper

  1. Great card, love the added bling! Thanks for playing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. Great Christmas card! Love all the special touches! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. I love all the details, Naki! The texture, gold star, pearls and the sweet little flower are all perfect components for this card. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  4. This is beautiful, Naki! I love how you used the tree as the focal point and it looks stupendous embossed in gold. I never really looked at this stamp set all that closely, but think I will have to take a closer look at it since Silent Night is one of my favorite carols/hymns as well.

  5. Super cute .... what a great card!
