Match the Sketch

March 16, 2017

My upline, the lovely Stephanie Pike, posted a list of challenge blogs for our team to use when we lacked inspiration.  I decided to play along with the sketch challenge at Match the Sketch this week.   I also liked the idea of the Paper Players challenge to use green (any green) and white.  Even though I didn’t get my card posted in time for the Match the Sketch challenge, it still meets the criteria for both challenges.

I knew that the Every Occasion stamp set would work perfectly for this sketch and settled on the tree image.  I stamped it nine times onto Whisper White card using Garden Green ink.  I punched out the images using the 1″ circle punch.  I attached the images to Garden Green circles cut using the smallest Layering Circle Framelit Die and attached them to Whisper White card.  I wrapped a length of Garden Green card with the Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon and attached it below the trees.  I stamped the greeting from the Star of Light stamp set below the ribbon using Garden Green ink.  I tied a bow in another length of Whisper White Organza Ribbon and attached it to the card front using a Glue Dot.
The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Garden Green card.

Inside the card I stamped another of the greetings from the Star of Light stamp set, once more using Garden Green ink.

Well,  what do you think?  I know its early but you can never have enough Christmas cards.

Bye for now,

Kris

    Oh… I love that you went with a Christmas card theme. The repeated trees on the white background are fabulous. So glad you shared this wonderful card with us at the Paper Players this week

    P.S. I think your upline is right – I often participate in challenges when I am feeling a little lost inspirationally, it’s amazing how they can take me out of my comfort zone and get my juices flowing

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I couldn’t go past Christmas with the combined challenge of the colours and the sketch. I totally agree challenges are a great way to kick off your creativity when you might be feeling a little lost for inspiration.
