Happy, happy Thursday! We have a fun creative challenge today for the hop and you may have come from Tara or just hopping in here. Either way this is what I’ve created for the hop.

C’mas Banners Bundle. 1

I chose to really ‘stick with’ the sketch challenge today 😏 and had lots of fun doing it. The DSP for the background is Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP and I edged it with narrow strips of Pool Party. I built on that with lots of die cuts using Decorated Pine Dies for the large pine fronds, then Christmas Banners Dies for the rest of the die cuts. I wanted to use all the colors in the DSP. The sentiment banner is stamped with the Christmas Banners stamp set in Sweet Sorbet then die cut with the same dies. I added it to the card front with dimensionals under the far ends of the banner, then slipped all the other die cuts in under and held in place with liquid glue. The large pine fronds die cut in Garden Green served as the background – as mentioned using the Decorated Pine Dies. The lower pine fronds are from the Christmas Banner Dies. Next layer is the stamped in Pool Party ink leaves (and I did three) and die cut with the Christmas Banner Dies. I used Pear Pizzazz card stock to die cut the single layer of leaves – also from the Christmas Banner Dies. For the berry spray, the branches were die cut from Soft Suede card stock (again 3). The berries are stamped in Real Red ink and die cut with the C’mas Banners Dies then adhered with dabs of liquid glue to the variousSoft Suede branches. Lastly I added Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins: 3 in Garden Green above the banner and 2 in white below the banner.

C’mas Banners Bundle, inside

For the inside of the card… I stamped a leaf bunch from the C’mas Banners stamp set in stamped off Pear Pizzazz ink, then over that with a pine spray from the same stamp set in Garden Green ink. I stamped the Merry in Real Red ink and the Christmas in Sweet Sorbet. Can you tell the difference? I like the contrast! This Basic White panel was adhered to Pool Party card stock then into the Thick Basic White card base ~ and the card was complete.

Christmas Banners Bundle.3

For the envelope, another bit of the same Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP on the flap and that was it. While this card has several die cuts, it is not heavy and I do not think will need extra postage – and that’s a PLUS!

Now HOP on to the next by clicking the ‘next’ link or by clicking on a name. Enjoy!
