Just look at what we have for you over at Freshly Made Sketches this week! Rita Wright has given us this fantastic sketch to play with and I love it! My card came together faster than one has in quite a while. Thanks Rita!!
I really wanted to go with a vintage style and this sketch left lots of room for interpretation. I embossed some Core’dinations Early Espresso Card Stock with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder and then sanded with the Stampin’ Sanding System. So easy, so cool looking! Then I cut out an oval with my Ovals Die (retired) and embossed it with the Designer Frames Embossing Folder. I sanded it too. Love how the dots show up! I stamped the tree from Joyous Celebrations and punched it with the Wide Oval Punch, the popped it up on a Dimensional in the frame. The Victoria Crochet Lace and the Crumb Cake Seam Binding were attached with a little bit of Sticky Strip which holds the ruffles in place. Finally, I attached the sentiments (individual words from the New Year’s stamp in Petite Pairs) with a little Vintage Trinkets safety pin.
I know it won’t surprise you but the design team has an amazing variety of cards over on the challenge site. It never ceases to amaze me how different designers interpret a sketch! Go take a peek and then join right in. I hope you are having a great week so far. Thanks so much for stopping in!!
