Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge where their 400th anniversary celebrations continue!
This week’s sketch was the one used for challenge number 200…. and it’s really minimalist! I decided to make another festive card, using a die I had forgotten – the Pine Tree Border from Poppystamps, dated 2011! Hard to believe that’s 8 years ago now! Anyway, I cut a panel of white card using the die and stamped a Clearly Besotted sentiment. I then masked off a circle on my card base and blended some distress inks to create a night sky. Maybe I should have gone a little darker, but let’s just imagine that the bright moon is making the sky seem blue, ok?!
I removed the masking paper and dabbed on a little watered-down distress ink to add some depth to the moon. I then stamped a Clearly Besotted Santa image over the moon. Finally I added my die-cut panel to my card base using some foam tape et voila, another Christmas card done! Yay!
Thank for stopping by!
Gorgeous card and such a clever way to use the sketch! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
