World Card Making Day - OWH Bloghop
Topic: Sketch Challenge

I am so excited to be participating in my very first bloghop! Today is World Card Making Day and Operation Write Home challenged us to create winter cards (including holidays if we wished) using an OWH sketch.

I chose to use sketch 134 seen here:

I have collected several 12 x 12 pads of Christmas papers and cardstocks over the years and use bits and pieces from them interchangeably. I keep them all together in one bin along with my Christmas stickers, greetings, rubons, etc. I gave up long ago trying to keep track of the manufacturers so won't provide any information along those lines.

This is the card I created (enlarged to show detail):

A patterned background is overlaid by two patterned paper strips which have been given a coordinating border. The panel on the right is a tone on tone metallic gold print. Since this is already a mix of Christmas words I did not add a sentiment to the card. This panel also got a coordinating border to separate it from the background.

The wreath is from a sheet of clear stickers. I mounted it to cream cardstock and trimmed it out. Then I mounted it up on foam tape and added a sheer ribbon bow using glue dots to adhere it.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Don't forget to click on the heading banner or on the link below to return to the bloghop.

I like how you let the paper say the sentiment and didn't overdo it by adding another one. Pretty card!

I like that you've used lots of patterned papers but then made everything cohesive with solid matting. LOVE that you allowed the text pattern to be your sentiment and that you added the sweet little bow to your wreath.  Happy WCMD!

Welcome to the fun world of blog hopping!  What a beautiful card!  I usually have problems with multi-paper cards, but you really made all those papers work wonderfully together!  I also love that you used the words as the sentiment, the wreath is a super focal point, and that ribbon is the PERFECT finishing touch!

I love what you did with the wreath - who would have thought that was a sticker.  The tiny bow on the wreath is perfect!
