Freshly Made Sketch 10 by Rita

Rita has a fun sketch for us all this week on Freshly made Sketches!

Since I have been in simple mode lately, thinking about cards easy to make a lot of, here is what i came up with! 

This is such a fun a'la carte stamp in the current catalog!  I chose a color scheme that goes along with this plaid from the Letters from Santa DSP.  After stamping the image on whisper white in early espresson, i re-stamped the ornaments in Ridinghood Red and Marina mist, then cut them out...adhered and covered in crystal effects.  Picture is a bit off on the sharpness, making them look more blurry than they are!

I used white bakers twine to break up the background into thirds.  All in all, a card that takes a few minutes to finish the ornaments, but pretty quick!

I love seeing everyone's samples every week!  I always learn new techniques and get lots of inspiration!  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!  Check out the design team for more inspiration!

  1. Love how you made the ornaments pop! This stamp looks great against that DSP!

  2. I love that you used the baker's twine to make the "panels". Too cool!

  3. Lauri - this is great! Love the way you broke it up into thirds using the twine. This will be easy to make and easy to mail. Especially love how the ornaments stand out as well! How is it that I never notice the ala carte stamps in the catalog? You have done a great job featuring them!

  4. Lauri, this is such a sweet Christmas card. The ornaments look so fabulous I'm glad to hear they are simple to do. And using the twine to create separation is something I will definitely file away for future use!

  5. Very nice, fantastic eye catching DP. I love the ornaments and the twine is a perfect addition.

  6. Oh, what a sweet card! Love the colors and plaid is always a favorite on holiday cards... I don't know why, but it just lends cozy warmth to holiday decorations. I think I still have that stamp! Gotta did it out! Hugs!

  7. What a great way to use the baker's the clean and simple look to this card!!!

  8. What a super card Laurie ... I love your panels and the twine adds such a great texture ...the christmas baubles are super pretty and I love your colour combination too!
    Fab job, well done ...

  9. your bakers twine used to cut your card into thirds was genius! Love the clean and simple look!


Thank you SO much for taking a few minutes to leave me a note!
