I have just completed a card for Keesh’s Challenge this week. Here is the sketch Keesh set.
This really took me out of my comfort zone. I don’t normally mix patterns together on a card, but I though this sketch would work well with this. The great thing with SU papers is they are designed to work together. That makes the job so much easier! I have been playing with my new Spring mini stamps and since I am starting to work on Christmas Cards I thought I would use the “Tree Trimmings” set. Here is my card I came up with.
I don’t have any fancy circle cutters so I used the old-fashioned way with a compass and pencil and cut them out with my scissors. I hope SU introduce the circle scissors here it would be so good!!!
Stamps: Tree Trimmings, Short and Sweet.
Card: Sage Shadow, Ruby Red, Whisper White, Windsor Knot DSP.
Ink: Ruby Red, Old Olive, Going Gray.
Other: Riding Hood Red ribbon (Ribbon Originals), Red Rhinestone Brads (Circle Fire), Mounting Tape, Horizontal Slot punch, Dazzling Diamonds, 2 way glue, paper piercer and piercing mat.
I punched a slot with the slot punch and threaded the ribbon through this and tied it in a knot. You can’t really tell though. I did add some holes using the paper piercer in the top left corner too. I stamped the ornaments on scrap Whisper White card and then cut them out. I put 2 way glue over them and sprinkled the Dazzling Diamonds on to give it some bling. It is a bit hard to see, but here is a close-up.
There you have it. Why don’t you go and check out the other entries for this challenge. I’m a bit behind in my posts so I will be back soon.
Have a good day. 🙂
