SC 016/11...

A new week brings a new challenge.  This week it was my turn & with Christmas just around the corner, what better challenge than to have a "Christmas Theme".  Along with the sketch, a Christmas card was created.  I am still not up to the number I want for my cards, so there will be another created later on in the week.

Measurements -
Base Card - Chocolate Chip - 8 1/4" x 5 7/8" or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 - Very Vanilla - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Cherry Cobbler - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 - Chocolate Chip - 2" x 4" or 5cm x 10cm
Layer 4 - Very Vanilla - 1 7/8" x 3 7/8" or 4.5cm x 9.5cm

I embossed the piece of Cherry Cobbler using my Bigshot & Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots & adhered it to the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock.

I stamped my image onto Very Vanilla Cardstock using StazOn Ink & coloured with my Aqua Painter, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler & Chocolate Chip SU Markers.  I did intend using my Blender Pen to colour the image, but didn't realise I had used my Aqua Painter until I had finished & saw the Blender Pen sitting very neatly & patiently on my desk.  Oh well, next time.  I left the little bird in his natural state on purpose, as I think he looks better this way.

I run a piece of Ribbon along the bottom half of the piece of Cherry Cobbler, adhered the coloured image to the top with SU Dimensionals & adhered the whole lot to the base card - Chocolate Chip.

I again used my StazOn Ink to stamp the greeting onto Very Vanilla, coloured again using the same supplies as for my image, punched using the Curly Label Punch & adhered to the bottom of the image.

A really great sketch to create very fast, yet lovely Christmas Cards.
