I'm this week's sketch designer at the Pals Paper Arts so I really hope lots of you will be inspired to play along this week. I would love to see what you create! I think it's a sketch that leaves a lot open for plenty of options. I'll show you the sketch and then my own take on it.
I love the Merry Medley background stamp and it was perfect for what I was going to do with the sketch. Garden Green provided the perfect base for the stamping and embossing in White Stampin' Emboss Powder. After stamping and embossing I split the page and trimmed a bit off one side so I could place a piece a bit of Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper down on the card base. After I got that down lots of Stampin' Dimensionals went on the back of my two pieces of Merry Medley embossed card stock to pop up over the DSP. Some Whisper White pine boughs were cut using the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies. I used these in place of the banner on the sketch and topped them with a Cherry Cobbler bow. That was a wrap for the exterior of the card!
I had a little piece of embossed card stock left from the exterior so I used that inside along with a senitment from Christmas Pines.
I do hope you'll visit the Pals Paper Arts if you haven't already. Everyone created some great cards for today's challenge. We hope you'll use our sketch and create a card to share with us too!
