I was inspired by the poinsettia in this week's sketch. Here's my card
For a change, I searched for the patterned papers first! I was happy with this striped and polka dot pairing. I used Simon Says STAMP's Poinsettia stamp set, which I stamped on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped one flower and six leaves. I used Copic markers to add color to match the patterned papers - E08, G85, R05, Y15, YG63 and fussy cut the images. I stamped the three MERRY sentiments using Simon Says STAMP's Chunky Christmas on a 3" x 3.75" piece of kraft cardstock. Using a MISTI to stamp the three words definitely helped. I stamped the first word and then moved the panel 0.25" and then re-stamped. I did this one more time. Having the MISTI made it possible to line the MERRY up and have the words equi-distanced from each other. I arranged and then adhered the cut outs to the same piece of kraft cardstock. I stamped the CHRISTMAS onto a scrap of green cardstock from the same stamp set and used a Photoplay Sentiment Strips Etched die to die cut the word before adhering it below the three MERRY words. Lastly, I adhered the pieces to a white A2 card base to complete the card.
We'd love to see how you are inspired by this week's sketch.
