52CCT - Pick a Previous Sketch ...

... Good morning!  It's the last Saturday in November and it's the fifth Saturday, so we have a bonus challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  We have a Pick a Previous challenge and Jacqueline has asked us to pick a previous sketch - you can find our previous sketches here.  I decided to go back to our July sketch for my card:

Stamps: Winnie & Walter - Winter Wonderland, The Big The Bold and The Merry
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Early Espresso, Gumball Green, Crumb Cake
Dies: Winnie & Walter - The Big The Bold and The Merry Cutaways
Accessories; White Lustre Card; SU Card - Crumb Cake; Green Tinsel Embossing Powder; Studio Calico Wooden Snowflakes; Sequins

We did things a bit differently in July with a blog hop and I didn't use the sketch, so it was nice to be able to make a card based almost exactly on the sketch.  I got some new stamps from Winnie & Walter last week and I just love this big fir tree.  I cut a panel of white card slightly smaller than the base and stamped the tree in Versamark, heat embossed with green tinsel powder - you can just about see the sparkle in the photo above - in real life it has a fabulous shimmer.  I edged the card with brown marker for some definition and adhered it flat to the card.  I used a new W&W die for the word Christmas - cuts like butter.  I finished the front of the card with some wooden snowflakes and added a few sequins for some more sparkle.  On the inside I cut a mat in Crumb Cake and on the white panel I stamped some fir branches and a simple greeting.
