Simple Sketch for Christmas

Happy Saturday!

This month, I have the pleasure of being the Guest Designer at Crazy4 Challenges
This is week 3 where the theme is a sketch.  I'm not usually good with sketches but I found this to be an easy one to create with.


I kept my card very simple with the snowflake being the main attraction.
I stamped the snowflake, then using a Spellbinder oval die, did the Out of the Box technique to cut it out.  Basically, you cut a portion of you image away and slide that piece on top of the die so it doesn't get cut when you run it through you die-cutting machine.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- CHRISTMAS

Addicted to CAS- DIMENSION

CASology- PRETTY

Addicted to Stamps- ANYTHING GOES


Have a great weekend.  Hope you get a chance to play along with us.

Supplies:  stamps- Basic Grey, Recollections/ Memento markers/ MISTI/ Spellbinder oval die/ Cuttlebug/ ScorPal/ Scorbug

  10. I love how you kept the card white by scoring lines to represent the lines in the sketch, Karen, and the partial cut snowflake makes a great medallion for the sentiment.
