2 Sketches 4 You - Merry Christmas Card


Hi All,

Here is a card that I made this morning for Laura's sketch over at 2S4U - as Christmas is in the air - I am realizing how far behind I am in my card making.... how far behind you ask.... Ohhhh - pretty much at the beginning....

Sigh... well, I think that maybe after Thanksgiving - I need to get the holiday groove and crank some out - but I couldn't resist making a xmas card for this sketch. I horizontally flipped Laura's sketch used the elements of Santa's sleigh and reindeers to represent the shapes of her sketch. I downloaded the pic of Santa's sleigh here and then colored and stickled and applied liquid applique to the card. The reindeer are die cuts that I sprinkled gold glitter on and then popped up on dimensionals ontop of the red ribbon. The sentiment was stamped onto a snowflake embossed background (with diamond stickles). The bottom scallops are from a mini scallop punch from Martha accented with red liquid pearls.



This was a total fun card - I loved coloring and cutting and adhering. Well, we are off to a birthday party - will post my Cinema Saturday card later here - but you can check it out on our blog over here: Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. This week's pick is A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving! :)

Thanks for coming over to visit!!
Ciao for now!!
Sankari :)
