Hi everyone, I hope you are doing well on this wonderful Friday mourning here in the South. Its not that bad outside the sun is shinning but a little cool; much better then the last few weeks. At least there is no rain today, which is great. My card today is for the Global Design Project Sketch challenge this week. It was super fun to do, and I actually had it done a couple of days ago but hadn’t gotten around to blogging about it. Life seemed to have gotten in the way, so as we are doing a yard sale out side I am inside posting my card.
Here is my card for this week I wanted to use the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper because I just love it. The designs remind me of my childhood. I love the colors in the paper as well as all the images. It just makes me happy. Yes I still watch these on TV when they come on during the Holiday Season, I just can’t help it. It just takes me back to a time when life was less technical then it is today. So here was the sketch for the challenge if you are interested.
So make sure you pop over and check out all the great cards that were made by all the talented artists.
Steps to making:
- My card base is cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2. I used a darker red cardstock that I had that matched the shadows on the red ornaments. I thought this would lend well to the greens that I knew I was going to use and the ornament paper. I cut a piece of Cucumber Crush to 3 1/2x 3 1/2 this was my matting piece. My DSP was cut at 3×3(which was a scrap from another project and a very happy accident.)
- I cut the 3×3 piece in half vertical. Then cut those in half horizontal to give me my perfect four squares. I layered them on my matting piece. I started at the bottom and lined those up right first and then layered on top. the 2 1/2 circle.
- I fuzzy cut the Rudolph out of the DSP and attached him down. for my sentiment I used the A Merry Little Wish from the Festival of Trees stamp set, and created a very small banner.
- Next I stamped the inside with on of the sentiments from the Six Sayings hostess set. and I was done.
The colors I used was Old Olive, Cucumber Crush, the Dark Red I don’t know the name. This was a super fun card to do and I hope that you will pop over to the Global Design Project Page and check out the other artists that took part in this weeks sketch challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today and drop back next week when I share my secret on how to create your own gold watercolor.
