Retrosketches sketch #33

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Yesterday I showed you my desk and the things I had out to make a card and maybe use a sketch to do it.  Well I decided to use the Retrosketches sketch #33 and make a Christmas card using the stamp set and washi tape that was on my desk.


Stamps - Marion Emberson Sparkling Christmas | Red washi tape | Gems - Ebay | border punch - Martha Stewart Lacey Doily.

I used some red washi tape around some card and used a border punch on the bottom to create a banner and used the bauble ornament stamps from the stamp set and added some gems to bling them up.

I am not 100% sure I like the card as I really should have put the banner and the baubles on some 3D foam to make them more dimensional and then it might have looked better.

I think it was good for my first attempt at a Christmas card this year. I don't usually make many Christmas cards, as for some reason I think they are harder to make but I know they are not really. 

Anyway, hope you week is going well and you are achieving the things you want to get done. I am such a procrastinator and my list gets longer and never seem to cross anything off it. Hopefully I will get things done and it clears my head a bit to do some more crafting.

See you soon.
