52CCT - Sketch ....

... Good morning! Well it's November now and almost time to be sending out the cards we've been busy making all year.  Now, if you haven't made any yet, you still have about 6 - 7 weeks in which to get some made.  Jacqueline is our host at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown for November, and she has a super sketch for us to use this week, here's my take:

Christmas Wishes - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Tis the Season, Warm Fuzzies; Stampin' Up! - Endless Wishes
Inks: SU - Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Dies: Lil Inkers - Stitched Rectangles #4; WMS - Folk Art Snowflake, Snowflake #2
Accessories:  White Lustre Card; SU Card - Crumb Cake; SU DP - Early Espresso; String and twine


I'm submitting this card to the Merry Monday challenge - MM#123 where the team would like us to use snowflakes, dry embossing and neutral colours - done!  I cut the panel from Crumb Cake card using a Lil Inker stitched rectangle, dry embossed this huge snowflake and wrapped it with twine and string.  I stamped the sentiment in dark brown, added a few more stamped snowflakes and then adhered the panel with dimensional tape.  I finished the front with one more snowflake - this time die cut from design paper.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of Early Espresso design paper, stamped more snowflakes and a sentiment on the white panel.

For more inspiration using this sketch - check out the cards from the rest of the team.

Now, before I go, we've got some exciting news.  We are looking to add some people to our Design Team.  If you would like to be considered you must play along with all our November challenges and simply add the initials DT after you card on the inlink submission.  Good luck!  See you soon.

Lovley. That embossing give the impression of leather! I particularly like the snowflake cut from design paper.
