Can you believe that there are only NINE weeks left until Christmas?
This week, I decided to join the sketch challenge and create a simple card using the Holly Jolly Border stickers and Build a Plaid stamp set. As you can see, instead of adding a scallop, I chose to create a variety of layers♥ at the base of the card.
Even though the Build a Plaid stamp set is intended for creating plaid designs, I chose to use it as a fill-in for one of my layers. Once the base of card was complete, I stamped the “December 25th” image onto black cardstock with VersaMark™ Ink, heat embossed it in white, then layered it atop a Candy Apple stitched circle. I love the look of white embossing powder on black cardstock.♥
I added a stamped Holly embellishment, a sentiment, and a few Holly Jolly Dots to complete the card. This card was so simple to create and could be made using a array of border stickers, paper scraps, or stamped images.
I hope that this card has inspired you to create something new this year for Christmas and to join the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I will be posting more cards I created using the Holly Jolly border stickers this week. In fact, I have created an entire workshop using them and I can’t wait to share them with you.
♥I can’t wait to see what you create!
