Welcome to Day 29 of Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.
As soon as I saw the sketch, I thought of my Horizontal Stripes die from My Favorite Things. Although I have HUGE PROBLEMS using this die, I knew it would be perfect for the sketch. How can such a simple die cause me so many problems, you may wonder! Well, the card buckles in my Gemini and the stripes seem to stretch as I can’t get them to lie flat. In the end, I used an old die cutting machine – the cut isn’t as clean but the card doesn’t buckle.
Anyway, enough of my moaning and onto my card! I blended various green distress inks on a card base and adhered a panel cut with the Stripes die on top. Next I assembled the gorgeous Birch Press Radiant ornament and adhered it to my card base, I added my favourite Sizzix bow and a Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my card.
Thanks for stopping by!
