It’s Sunday and time for another sketch from the good folks over at Operation Write Home. The sample cards this week were made by yours truly! 🙂
This was a really fun sketch, so I hope you give it a try. I didn’t have any circle dies that were large enough for the side panel, so for the first card I used my largest labels 8 die:
|MME Holly Jolly dp
Ali Edwards for Technique Tuesday stamp set
Gina K dark chocolate cardstock
Nesties labels 8, small circles and scalloped circles
I didn’t have a holiday sentiment that would fit the smaller circle nicely enough, so I used two different sentiment pieces from an Ali Edwards set to create this sentiment. I think it works, at holidays we do tend to count our blessings. However, what you CAN’T see in this card is the very creepy baby that Santa is holding. Check it:
Creepiest crafting find EVER. The rest of this 6×6 pad is lovely and very normal. Baby creeped me out though!
Then I decided to get crafty and you know, actually follow the sketch (which is not necessary but I would’ve felt slacker-ish if I didn’t, so there you are), so I found my personal CD player – well, my kids’ really – and traced it to make the circle panel for this card:
|Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar Soup dp
walnut cream -Bazzill and dark chocolate-Gina K cardstock
Unity Stamp Co sentiment; distress inks
I cut the circle by hand, adhered it to a layer of brown, and then hand cut that too. Easy enough and certainly proof that you don’t need the world’s fanciest or most expensive tools to craft (but don’t tell my husband)!
Thanks for visiting me today, and please do go link up a card after giving this sketch a try!!
