I love the new sketch for this week on Freshly Made Sketches...it is by fellow Close to My Heart Consultant Allisa Chilton! :) I am a huge fan of Allisa's, and adore the clean lines in her cards. I especially love her knack for matting...which this great sketch is all about! :)
What a great opportunity to get to work on some Christmas cards! I made my 6 x 6 card base out of Black CS. Then I matted my heart out with White Daisy, Ruby, and a paper from the For Always Paper Packet. Since I haven't quite been able to get my hands on our Close to My Heart Sparkle and Shine papers due out soon (exciting!) I decided to leave the Christmas portion of my card to the Green Glitter Paper! I just KNEW it would do the trick!
I traced this ornament from a set of retired ornament chipboard shapes. The hook connector is made with our Silver Glitter Paper. The beautiful script word, JOY, is cut from our brand new Cricut Artbooking Cartridge onto White Daisy CS and attached with glue dots for strength on the glitter.
I didn't stop there, though! I also added a bit of shimmery metallic tinsel-laced twine and a poinsettia embellishment from the Mini Medley Accents Ruby collection.
On the inside, I used the gorgeous silhouette of the nativity from Glory to God and a beautiful sentiment to tie the JOY ornament to the rest of the card from Merry and Bright.
Now I am starting to get ahead of myself in the seasonal celebrations, so I better slow down! Maybe I should just start my Christmas shopping instead? ;)
