A Christmas Card and Sketch

Today I wanted to post a Christmas Card for you guys and came across a neat sketch provide by my German Demonstrator friends Andrea & Nadia. And get this, some pre-cut cardstock that I had on my desk (leftover from a class) was already border punched, worked perfect with this sketch:

I only had to cut down my image layers to make them square!

Here is what my “recycled” card supplies made:

I used just one little wheel (Little Ornaments) in my jumbo handle with the spindle a spacer, and have to tell you it works great! The little ornaments were colored in with Markers and I added tiny Pearls. The big ornament (from Contempo Christmas) was stamped in Cherry Cobbler CRAFT ink and embossed with clear Embossing Powder, then punched out with the matching punch. The Cherry Cobbler Layer was textured with the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, then Cherry Cobbler ink was sponged across the snowflakes… and shimmer spray was added, of course!

I really like this color combo of Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake with white… Why don’t you give it a try?
