Over at Card Sketch a Day it is Christmas Tree week and I have been given a sketch to make 2 cards for.
The first card was made using a blank from a Brenda Pinnick Christmas kit I had from QVC for my birthday thanks to my lovely MIL.
The tree is a Sizzix die with little bells sewn on as the baubles. The design is finished off with Papermania peel offs.
The second design is a LMC blank with a freebie magazine tartan paper on top. The tree is a Dawn Bibby design rubber stamp which was embossed and decoupaged in 5 layers. The pot and trunk were cut from scraps of card and accented with gold pen and a heart shaped gem. Peel offs were used for the sentiment.
These sketches are sure getting me making Christmas cards earlier than I normally would.
