PPA#277 & TGIFC#31 & PP#273 - Christmas Remix Sketch

Hello and welcome back! It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted, and now that Thanksgiving is over, it's time to get working on some Christmas cards. Today's card is a combo for the sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the remix challenge at TGIF.





So here is my card:



I created this card on a base of Whisper White Thick Cardstock, layered it with Soft Sky, then a Whisper White layer embossed with the "vintage" Snow Burst embossing folder. The snowflake is stamped on Soft Sky with Soft Sky ink and punched out with the Flower Medallion punch. The sentiment is stamped on Soft Sky with Pool Party ink. For some added interest and bling, there is some silver sequin trim, a small silver metallic doily, and a large rhinestone jewel (from my stash of retired products).



Here's a better view of the doily under the snowflake.

This card went together very quickly and would be easy to replicate in batches. Maybe it will be one of the cards I send out this year.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

P.S. - I've also entered this card into the Tic Tac Toe challenge at The Paper Players this week. Can you tell which way I was able to make the tic tac toe?

  2. Cindi - I love how you've incorporated the foil doily into the design of your card - a wonderful, subtle accent. The sequins are shiny and festive. Thank you so much for playing along with this week's Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge.
