Cherished Gift

This Christmas

May peace, hope and love be your most cherished gift!

It’s time for another sketch challenge at Chi Chi Memories!

I made two separate cards because after looking at the sketch I realized the mat is a little broader than usual – but isn’t that part of the fun, putting one’s own spin on the sketch?  This is a really easy sketch to work with – I hope you’ll play along with us!

The card on the left is a bit more complex but not by much.  I matted the punched circles with a scalloped circle and added a sentiment border.  I apologize for not being able to read the sentiment – one of the curses when using pearlized paper, it has too much sheen to handle a flash.

I used this sweet Chi Chi Memories, Merry Xmas digital stamp and colored it using copic markers.  Did you notice I flipped the image on the second card?  That’s one of the things I love about digital stamps – they are so flexible.  I also appreciate that I can size them to fit the size of card I’m making!

What’s Christmas without a little snow?  I added the sparkle using Ultrafine Prisma glitter from Palette.

The snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch, to added just a bit more sparkle I added a rhinestone to the center of the snowflake.

  The sentiment was made using my computer.

I hope I’ve inspired you to give this sketch a try – I’d love to see your creations!
