Peace and Goodwill ....

... Hello again, time for another scheduled post.  It's the first Saturday in July and that means a sketch challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  Here's my take on the sketch:


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Seasonal Remedies; Stampin' Up! - More Merry Messages
Inks: Distress - Antique Linen, Ripe Persimmon, Festive Berries; SU - Early Espresso
Dies: Spellbinders - Small Labels (S4-169) #5, Large Labels (S4-168) #4
Accessories:  My Mind's Eye DP - Snowed In (FOC with Cardmaking & Papercraft); Ribbon, White Lustre Card; SU - Naturals Ivory Card


I decided to go a little vintage with this card.  These papers were free with a British craft magazine and were just what I wanted.  I used the star burst paper to cover the base of the card and then sponged the edges a little.  I cut a mat from one of the coordinating papers and stamped the label onto some white card.  I tried to match the colour of the backing mat by mixing Festive Berries and Ripe Persimmon.  I sponged the label to tone down the white and finished with a ribbon for the tag.  For the inside I used more of the star burst paper and sponged the edges.  I cut a panel of natural card and stamped on a simple sentiment.


That's all for now - do check out the blog to see what the rest of the team have made with this sketch!  See you soon.

I like your interpretation of the sketch - especially the way the stamped images pick up the colours in the background paper.

I wouldn't have thought to use that designer paper for a Christmas card, but you've pulled it together nicely with the stamp. Very cool!
