As we approach the end of the year, I am happy to share with you the last sketch of 2020 from Freshly Made Sketches. I am the sketch designer and I hope it is one you will enjoy over the next few weeks.
To be very honest with you, I am really behind on Christmas cards. I probably will have a seriously curtailed mailing this year but I think we all just have to pick what gives. When I designed this sketch, I had another stamp configuration in mind but I thought this set was too good to pass up! Pretty much ignored the sentiment placing on my own sketch. Yep, a 2020 move for sure.
I pulled out the Sparkle and Shine Kit from Gina K Designs. I love this snowflake and decided to heat emboss it and one of the coordinating sentiments. But which color? Clearly, I could not decide so I just made three of them. I used three of the colors from Gina K’s Glitter Card Stock as accents and then three colors of Wow Embossing Powder.
Since gold was my youngest son’s favorite, I thought I’d show it a bit closer. As always with metallics and glitter, it is hard to capture all that you see in person. The key to the “production line” on this was dueling MISTIs. I had one set up with the snowflake and one with the sentiment. I stamped them each with Versamark and then added the embossing powder, then heated. Once I had it set up, making multiples was the obvious choice.
I hope you will have some time for crafting over the next few weeks. This sketch will remain open until January 4th so come over and play along. I’m off to finish a few more cards and then I’ll be moving on with some new things for the new year. Thank you so much for stopping in. Please remain safe! See you soon.
