Happy Saturday everyone! I’m back today with a card made with my new favorite Christmas set, Bright Hopes. I just love this set!! I’m was also excited to play with the new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, FMS3.
I flipped the sketch to accomodate the tree, as you can see. This set is perfect for the challenge because it is best kept “clean”. The intricate details on the stamps do all the work! I interpreted the scallops on the sketch in a slightly different way and used the border stamp to created a scallop look. Trust me, your Stamp-a-ma-jig is your best friend here. I did find that the card was a bit “bottom heavy” (and no one wants to be bottom heavy!!) so I added matching scallops to the top of the card. Problem solved! I tied the beautiful Early Espresso Quilted Ribbon into a double bow and finally added a sentiment on the banner. As usual, it is hard to photograph the dimension on the card and the banner is raised in the midde with Dimensionals with the ends flared up a bit. The final addition was the Basic Pearls, another perfect little detail.
I hope you like this Christmas card as much as I do. I am fully in Christmas card planning mode so you can expect to start seeing lots more. In fact I will be back on Monday with two more cards (two cards, one layout) with Bright Hopes. Thanks for stopping in today!! Have a wonderful weekend!
