Freshly Made Sketches 164

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

My Christmas card odyssey continues this week courtesy of the latest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our hostess is Jen Brum and the sketch is so full of possibilities I had a hard time narrowing down the ideas I had for the sketch!

In the end I went with a color combo I turn to frequently at this time of year:  kraft, with just about anything else!  This time around I paired it with some blue cardstock and some silver glimmer paper.



The stitched layers add such a nice detail and the horizontal one provides an excellent space for a sentiment and some glimmery snowflakes.  And as if there wasn't enough glimmer, I added a big ol' rhinestone to the center of the biggest snowflake.  It looks fanatastic in real life!

As usual, the Freshly Made Sketches design team have created some fantastic cards for you this week, so be sure to check them out!  Thanks for stopping by!

The blue and silver look so lovely with the kraft - that blue is such a cool color (as in wintry - not trendy, although it is quite trendy too...)

Beautiful card Jen! I love the colour combination! So soft and yet so elegant! I love those snowflakes! So pretty!

Cindy Hall said...

This color combination is so entrancing. With the "stitched" dies, it looks like the two pieces are leather or suede. Really awesome look and stunning card. I just want to keep looking at it really close, kinda like your kitty in the last post. :)
