I had lots of fun designing the sketch and hope you like it. I have used the theme of mistletoe from this week's Merry Monday - # MM#102 challenge as I wanted to use the WMS mistletoe stamp and die. And, while going through my stash, I came across this pretty paper which also has mistletoe images. I cut a piece of the paper to cover the card and embossed the stitched pattern. I didn't want to hid the backing paper, so I cut my vertical panel from vellum, embossed a dotty texture and adhered it to the card. I stamped the mistletoe on white card, coloured the berries with Copics and cut it out with the matching die. I tied on some Baker's twine and adhered the mistletoe with dimensional tape. I added some glossy accents to the berries, which you can just about see in the photo above. For the inside I used another piece of the design paper and on the white panel stamped some more mistletoe and a Christmas greeting.
Our Guest Designer this month is Pat Couder (Created by Pat) - she makes fabulous cards; she also does scrapbook pages and photography too - a very creative lady! For more inspiration with this sketch check out Pat's card and those from the rest of the team. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you make this week. Bye for now!
