This is my third card based on the sketch I created for Jingle Belles. In my previous post HERE, I explained that I am a guest star at Jingle Belles this week (so exciting!) For this card, I let my imagination run wild and came up with this rather silly card with a Santa suit and hat to represent the main elements in the sketch. Can you still see the sketch in this creation? The Santa suit was so easy to make. I grabbed some felt, cut it into the shape of a hat and suit and then used some polyfill to add faux fur. In addition, I hand cut a belt from some scrap pieces of black cardstock, folded it around the suit and adhered it with glue dots. I used MS Word to print my sentiment on white cardstock, cut around it in the shape of a banner and matted it on black cardstock. Of course, I wrote "Christmas" inside the card to complete the sentiment.
Cardbase: Paper Studios, Patterned Cardstock: MME 12 Days of Christmas,Black cardstock: from my scrap stash, Whole punch, Polyfill, Red Felt, Adhesive: Elmer's Glue Spots, Scotch ATG

What a clever idea! I tend to take sketches very literal, so I would have never come up with something like this in a million years!ReplyDelete
