WMS Sketch Challenge #72


Christmas will soon be here! I made a triptych card for the current Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.


My inspiration for this project comes from a wonderful Valentine's project by Sharon Johnson that you can see here. I didn't follow her instructions because I didn't have them at hand. I just went from memory. The Labels Fourteen frames and plum pudding are WMS stamps. I used Brilliance Ink in Rocket Red to stamp everything. The letters are die cut. So are the Spellbinders Labels Fourteen, the white center circle and the scalloped red one. I am thankful for my Cuttlebug! The rest is coordinating design papers and ribbon. I accented the plum pudding with a paper-pieced bottom to coordinate with the designer paper and three Swarovski crystal "berries." Noel!

OH CHARMAINE! Loooove how that cute truffle is the "O", which makes it the sweetest Joy card ever! The golden bows are awesome, and I love how you used those images as frames for the letters. Just noticed the reindeer along the bottom, SO CUTE! To top it off, it's a row of TAGS, eeek, love that idea for a Christmas trifold!

Such a joy to behold!!! Great backing papers, and I really like the way you've used the pudding for the letter "O" - brilliant! The tag shape works so well for this very festive card. Love it!
