Just Christmas and Birthday Cards ~ Sketch 12

Whoohoo ~ It was my turn to create a sketch for you all to play with at Just Christmas and Birthday Cards. I'm a simple girl when it comes to elements. I love seeing what everyone comes up with. Stop by and check out the other design team cards. They're all great!

I was soooo excited to use a barrowed 'toy' for this card. Cricut's Hello Kitty cartridge is super cute. Thank you Kathrin for letting me play :) The backing was tricky for me because I didn't want it to distract from the image, but still add to the whole cards look. I came up with a dark blue paper with light grey flourishes and snowflakes, then covered with a snowflake printed vellum.

Cricut cartridges: Hello Kitty cut at 5" Green pieces are colored/blended prisma pencils. Bow and buttons are stickled in Christmas Red and Patina green, antlers and nose have diamond glaze over top of prisma pencils to add a little dimension.

Scallop edge cut using photo corner side by side, 2 colors layered, with fun flower lace strip over top.

Misc: Prima, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, heart brad
