52CCT - Sketch ....

...  Hello, welcome to our first challenge of April, our host this month is Louise.  As always, our first challenge of the month at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown is a sketch, and Louise has a real doozy for us!  I have to admit to a touch of panic when I first saw the sketch, but when I gave it a bit of thought I relaxed and ended up with a series of five cards!!!

There's very little stamping on any of these cards.  I used a different Christmas theme paper pack on each card - it's a really great way to use up some of my large vast collection of design paper.  They are perfect for going in the post - all flat, but with the different patterns and images they have lots of interest too.  Here's our sketch:


I've taken photos of each card separately with a picture of the inside.

I drew out the sketch on some grid paper and worked out the size of paper to cut and then went wild with all my scraps!  I'm so pleased how they turned out.  They all have a slightly different feel from contemporary through to vintage.

A great series of cards Deborah - you've achieved a wonderful, modern look that's very unusual and desirable. I can just see these for sale on the shelves of a posh high street store. Gill xx
