Welcome to Day 22 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .
It took me a little while to work out what I wanted to do with this sketch – I toyed with panels of patterned paper and embossed cardstock but in the end, I created my own card front, cutting out three frames and added my homemade patterned paper behind the frame. I created the paper with some unpatterned Basic Grey paper and Picket Fence Studios’ Falling Pinecones stamp. It was a tricky stamp to use – couldn’t get it to stamp consistently. I looked at the image online – it doesn’t look as if the cones are supposed to have a weathered or distress look when stamped but after 4 layers (thank goodness for the MISTI), I called it good enough!
I added a couple of the Poppystamps Mistletoe branches and Nuvo drops plus a sentiment by My Favorite Things to complete my card.
Thanks for stopping by!
I love the pretty sparkle on this sweet card and how the branches pull the three panels together. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
