Sketch for Christmas
Hello Happy Stampers!
Today is Sketch Challenge day on splitcoaststampers! Because I am dreadfully behind on my Christmas cards, I knew my goal was to create one, then duplicate it to build up my stash. I have 5 others like this in the works!
I started with a Color Dare (riding hood red, old olive and a neutral of choice) idea, but since I added so much chocolate chip, I'll try the Color Dare later! My card base is riding hood red, and I used old olive with retired Holiday Treasures dsp for the horizontal layers. The sentiment is also retired from All Year Cheer, and I colored it with my stampin' write markers. I pulled out the Scallop Trim border to add some interest, and popped up the panel on dimensionals. The chocolate chip corduroy buttons are available on the clearance rack, and I added a touch of red twine (retired). You can see that I used very vanilla and a bit of the dsp on the inside also.
I still have about 80 Christmas cards to make! Gasp!! This will be a good way to use up my retired stuff because there are some new goodies coming out in January from Stampin' Up! I must make room!!! LOL!!
