Intro to December Sketch

Yikes! We are half way through December already! I've already sent out all my Christmas cards for friends and family but I couldn't resist creating another Christmas card based on the new sketch at The Sketch File. Kathy describes this sketch as "corner crossing" and I think you can see why. I've used a few boughs to meet and cross in the bottom right corner and then included two different sized snowmen to layer on top. As always Kathy has created a couple of versions of the sketch and we are looking forward to seeing what you create with your preferred version. Remember you can shrink, enlarge, rotate and make changes that work for you. Please post your creation with us HERE.

Santa Card

I created this card with a die that was given to me last Christmas.  I love the resulting Santa image. I started by die cutting with red cardstock, then ran the die through the die cut machine with black cardstock so that I could get the boots and mittens.  It's a fairly simple card, but I wanted to limit the details so the focal point would be Santa.
