52CCT - Sketch ...

.... Morning! This week has flown by. It's the first Saturday of the month which means it's time for our new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT22-16. Our host this month is Jacqueline and she has a fabulous sketch for us. Here's my take:

Stamps: My Favourite Things - Grand Holiday Greetings; Uniko - Stunning Snowflakes
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up - So Saffron, Blushing Bride
Dies: Memory Box - Snowflake Arch
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Rose Red; SU DP - Blushing Bride, So Saffron; SU Glimmer Paper - Silver; SU Punch - Blossom Punch; Gems; Vellum; Clear Embossing Powder


As soon as I saw this sketch I knew I wanted to use this lovely snowflake arch die. The weather in Northville is so summery that I decided to make a card with non-traditional colours, these come from CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#176. I made the base from Rose Red card, cut a panel of Blushing Bride design paper for the side of the card and die cut the arch from silver glimmer paper. I punched some "snowflakes" from yellow design paper, added some gems and adhered them to the card. I finished the front with a bold sentiment stamped on vellum and heat embossed with clear powder. On the inside I cut a panel of white card on which I stamped pretty snowflakes and added a greeting - simple! The theme at Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#196 is Anything Goes, so I'm playing along with them.

Do visit our blog to see more inspiration cards from the rest of the team. You've got lots of time to play along, deadline is midnight (BST) Friday 10th June - that's 7.00pm EDT in the States.

The reason I've not blogged anything last week is that I had my birthday on Thursday - 56 years young! I plan on celebrating for as long a possible and today I continue with a craft class at my local shop in Northville! Enjoy your weekend! Bye for now.

LOVE how you have used the colours for a Christmas card. I wouldn't have associated them with Christmas myself, but they work really well. Thanks so much for joining in at CC&S this week and lovely to see you use some Uniko too ;) Hugs Bev x

c'est si charmant Deborah, le rose et l'argent se marient a merveille dans un design très moderne, biz

The snowflake arch is gorgeous! I wouldn't have thought to use the CC&S colors for Christmas but when paired with the glitter, they give a frosty feel to your card. Awesome job combining the challenges! :)
