We have a new challenge at Just Add Ink for you. This week the sketch has been designed by me. I’ve created a simple sketch that can be interpreted in so many different ways.
I really love non-traditional colours for Christmas cards and I really love featuring black on them. The only stamping I did on this card is the sentiment. This Christmas sentiment is a new favourite of mine. It’s from a Stampin’ Up stamp set called Better Together. The pine boughs I added for layering are cut with my Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.
To create a border around my sentiment (that was punched with my Pretty Label Punch), I used a die from Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies. As I wanted to create more of a oval shape to frame the sentiment, I cut the diecut through the centre and overlapped it under the sentiment.
I then layered some Burlap Ribbon and a half strip of this gorgeous Striped Ribbon as I had them both sitting unused on my desk. The strip of designer series paper was also sitting unused on my desk. This pretty paper is from Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper. I always love it when I can use up discarded products laying around on my desk. It kind of makes me feel like I’m getting somewhere on cleaning up my desk!
Here’s my card:
The girls in the design team have created gorgeous cards to inspire you. Head over to the challenge and take a look at their creations. We would love it if you could play along with this sketch challenge.
Thanks for stopping by.
