BYSHC Sketch #30 ~ Holly

Happy Saturday friends! I’m a day late in posting, but better late than never. I’m sharing my second card for BYSHC Sketch Challenge #30. It’s a fun sketch created by Crystal O. Minkler and I went with traditional colors this time. Red, Green, and Gold.

I started by cutting the paper panels into the size I needed. I printed, copic colored, and fussy cut the Holly & Mistletoe image. I used a gold gel pen to add some gold veins in the leaves. I heat embossed the sentiment and added foam tape behind the image. Lastly, I added some gold embellishments.

Thank you for dropping by and hope you join us on Facebook for a chance to win some goodies. The last day to play with this sketch is Feb 28th. Check out the BYSHC Blog for some more inspirations by the design team.

BYSHC Sketch Challenge #30

Happy Friday! I’ve been really busy and swamped with family stuff so I haven’t had time to write blogs for the past couple of months. I’ve been sharing my cards on Instagram though, so check out my Instagram to see what I’ve been up to.

Now on to BYSHC Sketch #30 challenge. This sketch is great for using double sided papers and your scraps. I took a 6″ by 6″ paper and cut it to 4.25″ by 5.5″. I took the leftover 1.75″ scrap by cut it to 1″ by 5.5″. I flipped it over since double sided papers are designed so the front and back side will pair well together. I found a piece of scrap paper with the snow angels in the same paper pack and used that for the card.

I stamped the penguin, colored it with copic markers and die cut it out with GKD Master Layout 1. I took a small scrap of the blue pattern paper and stamped the sentiment on it. I thought the sentiment was perfect with the penguin because it looks like the penguin is opening its’ arms for a hug. What do you think?

I hope this inspires you to join the challenge. Join us on Facebook for a chance to win some goodies and check the Blog for some beautiful cards created by the Design Team. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
