Welcome to this week’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop. This week we bring you a sketch challenge that we’re all following.
I have to admit, this sketch through me for a bit of a loop. I wasn’t all too sure what I wanted to do for that bottom cluster. Then I saw the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set and knew I wanted to use the presents.
My card uses Cherry Cobbler as its base and I used one pattern from the This Christmas DSP to layer over it and then I took another pattern (this one with more details), cut it smaller, and layered it over some more Cherry Cobbler.
I cut out the sleigh using the Gold Foil Sheet from the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits (included in the bundle) and cut it down a bit to get my “banner” detail from the sketch.
I created three presents using the Santa’s Sleigh Bundle using Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, and Pear Pizzazz cardstock and stamping the present images in Archival Black. I cut out three bows using the same three colors of cardstock, this time stamping in the coordinating color. I added a gold enamel dot to the one top present.
The sentiment is included in the Santa’s Sleigh Bundle was stamped in Archival Black on Cherry Cobbler and a Gold Baker’s Twine bow was added over it. To finish off the card, I added a few Gold Sequins.
