2S4Y Sketch 62 & MFW: Jolly Holiday Greetings Challenge

Thursday, September 30, 2010

For today's papercrafty take, I combined 2 Sketches 4 You's Kazan's Sketch 62...
with Moxie Fab World's Jolly Holiday Greetings Challenge, to create any holiday card, and came up with this.
I started this card by punching a piece of white cardstock, down its right edge, with a portion of my new, Decorative Label punch; distressing its edges with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks; framing it with a hand cut piece of Ruby Red cardstock; and dressing its left side with a strip of sheet music, patterned paper.  I, then, ran light-green-threaded, straight stitches down its left edge, as well as both long sides of the patterned paper, before adhering it to the distressed, with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, Certainly Celery, cardstock, card face.  The wreath image was stamped, in Ruby Red, Certainly Celery, and Pretty in Pink inks, near the top of the prepped, white cardstock...
and the "peace-hope-joy" sentiment was stamped, in Certainly Celery ink, vertically, along the bottom right side of the patterned paper.  A pink ribbon, wrapped around the card face, vertically, and tied in a bow near the bottom of the card face...
as well as a few, clear gemstones...
complete the look.
So, super excited to, also, get to tell you all that I have been named The Playdate Cafe's Cup of the Week for this card!
Eeek!  Thanks so much ladies!  I'm, truly, honored!  Have a great day, everyone!
