This week at the 52 CCT challenge blog we have this fab sketch layout for you to work with. Very versatile, this will work for portrait, landscape, rectangular or square cards and it can be CAS or kicked up a notch - totally up to you! Please check out the cards the other Design Team members have made to inspire you - as well as Jacqueline and Mynnette there are some new girls joining this week and I'm sure they'd love it if you visited their blogs!
I kept it simple with this card design using my treasured, much loved, PSX Christmas Village stamp. This is one of my oldest stamps and I will NEVER willingly part with it! I stamped the image onto Whisper White CS using Cherry Cobbler ink and then I added seasonal sparkle to the roofs, trees and snowy ground with glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I matted the image panel onto Baja Breeze and Cherry Cobbler layers and added silver brads to the corners. I stamped the one line sentiment onto Baja Breeze CS and cut it into two pieces before gluing it to the panel. For my background panels I cut a piece of Baja Breeze CS, embossed it with a snowflakes embossing folder, brayered Baja Breeze ink over the embossing and cut the piece into three strips. I've popped up the image panel over the embossed panels with 3d foam tape.
You know by now that the inside of my cards and envelopes have to be decorated too! Stamped snowflakes and a lovely sentiment for the inside of the card and a snowflake embossed strip for the front of the envelope finished things off. I hope you'll play along with us and make a card using this layout, I'd love to come and see how you interpret it!
