Here is my sample for today’s sketch.

The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Always Artichoke, followed by a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Shimmery White cardstock.

The bottom two corners were punched with the ticket corner punch.

Next was a 2 1/4″ x 5″ piece of Wintergreen Designer paper. I LOVE that paper! Again I punched the bottom corners with the ticket corner punch.

The rectangle layer is first a 2 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Certainly Celery cardstock with a 2 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ piece of Wintergreen paper adhered on top. I punched a hole with my Crop-a-dile and added white Taffeta ribbon.

The main image is a 2 1/2″ square of Shimmery White cardstock, with three of the four trees from Lovely as a Tree image stamped in Always Artichoke. I colored the sky with Soft Sky reinker and Aqua painter and washed over the tree top with aqua painter to spread the Artichoke a little bit.

It was layered on a 2 3/4″ square of Soft Sky Cardstock and a 3″ square of Always Artichoke. Once I taped it down to the card, I added Dazzling Diamond glitter with my 2 Way Glue pen on the ground and on the tree.

For the Sentiment I stamped the Holiday Sentiment from Circle of Friendship in Always Artichoke on Shimmery White and on Soft Sky Cardstock. I punched out the inner circle from the Soft Sky Cardstock with a 1/2″ circle punch and the entire circle sentiment from the Shimmery White cardstock with my 1″ circle punch.

The next layers are a paper pierced 1 1/4″ Soft Sky circle and a 1 3/8″ Certainly Celery cardstock. Last it was layered on a large Shimmery White oval punchout. I added two silver brads to each end of the oval punchout and mounted the sentiment with dimensionals to the card.

For the final touch I added about a 1/3rd of a large, paper pierced Certainly Celery oval punchout on the top left of the card with a silver brad in it.
