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:


Addicted to CAS- DIMENSION


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

CAS and gorgeous! I love the white on white layers with a bit of dry embossing which really showcases the focal snowflake image wonderfully!

This is gorgeous, Karen! Love the scoring and the partial die cutting and how that fabulous blue just pops! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

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.
