The dear Jen Brum has come up with a clean and really awesome sketch for this week at Freshly Made Sketches! I love all the possibilities it provides for die cuts or stamped images.
I went all in on the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set for this card. I love when you can stick to only one set and this set really is fabulous. I know it is mostly a sentiment set but the combinations of sentiments give so many options! And then there is the snowflake. Love this snowflake! I stamped the image onto Tip Top Taupe card stock using Versamark ink, added White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed. Then I cut it with my 2-1/2″ Circle Punch. On another layer of Taupe, I stamped the sentiment the same way and embossed. I centered the circle just laying it on the Joy layer and placed my circle template on top of it. Once that was in the right spot, I used my Piercing Tool to add the circle detailing. I popped the snowflake on Dimensionals and added Basic Pearls. I love the color scheme on this. A little more toned down but clean and elegant.
I have to confess that I want to keep playing with this sketch and you might see some more from me over the next few weeks using it. Thanks, Jen!! I suspect you will feel the way and I hope to see your creations in the gallery!
I will be back tomorrow with a really fun card and a video. Hint: Another product review for Splitcoaststampers!!! See you then!
