52CCT - Sketch ....

....  Good morning!  Welcome to the first challenge of the month at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and our hostess is Patricia.  As normal, we have a sketch for you and Patricia is happy for you to flip it, change it to a square or make it a mirror image, but we must be able to see the basic sketch in your finished card.  Here's my take:

Believe - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Festive Foliage, Frame-It
Inks: Versamark; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Provo Craft - Hippie Chick
Accessories: Cream Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Holly Bright; Stampendous - Frantage Aged Gold Embossing Enamel; SU Markers - Mossy Meadow, Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede


The challenge over at Merry Monday - MM#156 this week is to use green, pine cones and the word Believe - check!  I flipped our sketch through 180° as it worked better for my design.  I covered the card with some lovely pine cone design paper in green. On the central panel I stamped some pine cones and branches in Versamark and embossed with Frantage embossing enamel.  I love the effect this embossing powder gives, but it does have a tendency to fly off the card!  I die cut some letters from the design paper to make the word and adhered them direct to the card.  I finished the front with a couple of extra pine cones that I attached with dimensional gel (but you can't really see that in this photo!!  On the inside I cut another sheet of the design paper and stamped a simple greeting and a few more pine cones too.

I just love that sentiment cut out of the same paper, at first I thought you had used the negative die. The pine cone swag is beautiful. Fab card Deborah

How pretty - love the inside of your card as well! So neat how you repeated the pine cones from the PP with your stamping!

The lovely pine branch image coordinates so nicely with your designer paper! I like that you've cut the "Believe" letters from the designer paper, too. The inside of the card is super, too!
