52CCT - Pick A Previous ....

...  Hello, good morning!  We've arrived at the last day of January - this month has simply flown by.  We've had five Saturdays this month, so that means we have a bonus challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and I've gone for PICK A PREVIOUS SKETCH.  You can pick any of our previous sketches (click on the link) - just let us know which sketch you're using.  Here's my card:

O Christmas Tree - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko Studio - Rustic Christmas, Stunning Snowflakes
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Garden Green, Coastal Cabana
Dies: Memory Box - Cross Stitched Frame Borders #7
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Garden Green; Green Tinsel Embossing Powder; Gold Embossing Powder; Alcohol Inks; Metallic Foil


I decided to use the sketch from July 2014 - I think this is one of my favourite sketches.  I've kept really close to the sketch.  I used some metallic foil for the background layer which was coloured with alcohol inks (from my scrap stash).  I cut die the white panel and stamped the tree and sentiment in Versamark, then heat embossed them both.  I added a few snowflakes to finish the front.  On the inside I cut a mat layer in green and on the white panel added another tree, lots of snowflakes and a simple greeting.

Check out the blog to see what the rest of the team have made - all so different and all just lovely.  Have fun with the challenge!
