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.
