Freshly Made Sketches 414

Well, I don't know why I forgot to publish this post on Wednesday, but I figured I better do it or else!  So here we go:

One of these days I will make a card that doesn't have a Christmas theme.  Today is not one of those days!  😉 Today is our debut of a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and our hostess, Karren, designed a sketch that I decided would fit my Christmas card needs perfectly...... if I flipped it on its side.

I had a vague idea in my head of what I wanted my Freshly Made Sketches card to look like when I stumbled upon the color challenge at CAS Colours and  Sketches.  The colors there were just the inspiration I needed to turn my vague idea into an actual idea.  I turned the sketch counter-clockwise and used some gold washi at the bottom of the card. Then I added a big sentiment in red outlined with gold glimmer paper along with a few green enamel dots.  My green dots are not exactly the color they are looking for but they'll have to do!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my tardy Freshly Made Sketches post.  Better late than never!

Stamps:  Fa La La (Simon Says Stamp)
Paper: Classic Ivory (Flourishes); Cherry Cobbler (Stampin' Up!); gold glimmer (Recollections)
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories:  Fa La La die (Simon Says Stamp); enamel dots (Doodlebug Designs); washi tape

Such a fun card! I love that the glitter paper is the mat (I always think "special" stuff needs to be the show - but this is perfect). Thank you for playing along with us at CC&S!

I like how the focus of your card is on the cheery sentiment. Thanks for making CC&S part of your crafting time! :)

Be assured that you can create as many Christmas cards as you want/need to. It's always such a pleasure to admire them! Each and every one looks so modern and beautiful.

What a beautiful card, Jen. I love this wavy sentiment die cut and the diagonally striped patten below the sentiment. So vibrant! Thank you for your stunning card at CC&S challenge.
