Happy Wednesday! Welcome back for another fun challenge from Freshly Made Sketches! This week’s sketch is courtesy of the amazing Jen Mitchell from I Create and boy does she ever create! Her style is so cool. She has a knack for wonderful clean lines but her cards always have a “wow” factor!
I took another non-holiday turn for this card. I don’t know about you but I have some family members who have December birthdays. I always try to make something for them that makes them feel special and that in no way reflects Christmas. So out came the Beau Chateau DSP and off I went. This paper seems to call out for a flower but instead of stamping one, I created one from my Fun Flowers die. I folded up a piece of wrapping tissue paper and ran it through the Big Shot. Since my tissue paper was white and this paper has a sponged element I sponged the layers with some Crumb Cake ink. The center of the flower is a Crumb Cake button from my Neutrals pack. The little banner is stamped on another piece of DSP from the set and grounded with an additional button. A little bit of Linen Thread was tied onto both buttons to complete the look. Between the Big Shot and the DSP, this is one of those cards that looks harder than it is…love it when that happens!
Thanks so much for dropping in today. Make sure you go see what the rest of the team has created to inspire you. They always amaze me! I certainly hope that you get some crafting time this week and will show us your version of the sketch. I will be off for a few days for the Thanksgiving holiday but next week promises to be full of posts! For those of you in the US, I wish you a safe and blessed Thanksgiving! See you soon!
