I am Posting this EARLY…I have a Craft Fair Today and I am
going to be leaving very Early…so this will be several hours early!
Making all the items for the Craft Show has put me in the Christmas Spirit!
I have Christmas on the Brain!
Many of the Challenges out their in Blog Land
are now doing Christmas themed Challenges…
…although I am at goal for my Christmas Card Stash,
I just can’t resist a Christmas Challenge!
Today’s Card is for a Sketch Challenge and it is NOT Christmas…
…but I couldn’t resist turning this sketch onto a Christmas Card!
Here is the Sketch Challenge from
Freshly Made Sketches #363
At first glance, it looked as if this sketch was asking
for the DSP to make a large statement…the decision was…what DSP?
As mentioned before, I was at max for Christmas Cards, but….
I had to make a ‘sweet’ card!!!
Here is my take on the Sketch!
I really like this DSP! It is called Santa’s Workshop Specialty DSP.
The ‘Specialty’ is that some of the DSP is flocked!
Those ‘white stripes’ in the DSP…flocked! So Pretty!
I also used the new ‘Candy Cane Builder Punch’!
The Punch, punches out the Candy Cane AND the bow!
The Stamp Set is a 2 Step Stamp Set and I liked the that I could
put the greeting inside the Candy Cane!!!
Here is the inside of the Card!
Kept it simple and left plenty of space for that personal note and signature!
