“Merry Tex-mas Card”
Based off Card Sketch #14 by Allison Davis
Here is my card I created based off Allison's awesome sketch over at Sketch Support:
Variation #1: Instead of using a Christmas tree as shown in the sketch, I stamped a snowflake swirl in the same general area on my card. I then heat embossed the swirl and added some diamond stickles to some of the stamped image.
Variation #2: My message was the focal point of my card instead of being just an accent. My snow globe stamp had both an image and the sentiment. I colored the image with copic markers, added some stickles glitter to the snow dots, and covered the glass globe area with glossy accents. I also added some red stickles to the holly berries.
Variation #3: Instead of using a decorative edge on my green pattern paper, I rounded the corners with the corner chomper punch.
Variation #4: Even though the sketch didn’t include borders, I added a ribbon and polka dot strip of paper at the bottom to help “ground” my stamped image. I added staples to the ends of the ribbon to attach it to the card.
