Topic: Sketch Challenge
I think these winter and Christmas cards using OWH sketches are getting better and better as I go. I hope you agree! Don't forget - I will be featuring the best one on October 6 for an OWH bloghop for World Card Making Day. Be sure to check back then and I'll provide a link to the rest of the bloghop for you.
Sometimes the sketch itself tells you what it wants to be. That was the case the first time I saw sketch 103:
My very immediate thought was 'those should be Christmas ornaments'! I found some paper in the stach that had round elements and cut circles around three of them to create the baubles. They got their edges darkened with 'old paper' distress ink so they would appear to be spherical. I also cut out three of the little trees and opped them up on foam in the middle of the ornaments and created a little 'cap' for each out of gold cardstock. The baubles are mounted with foam tape in the center and ATG glue around the edges so they are actually 'puffy' on the card. A length of scrappers floss is caught underneath each of the caps and wrapped to the back of the front panel.
I cut the words from the paper with the overall text print and mounted them to some of the cable knit printed paper. These were attached over the background collage of masculine prints and then each was given some faux stitching. The larger one got X stitching which I think looks cozy and cute.
