merry sketchmas to you

i love sketches for card-making, i may have mentioned that before-- possibly even several million times before, lol. i especially love sketches drawn by my lovely friend and ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ cohort Stephanie Severin, so i'm pretty psyched that we have a brand new one this fortnight:

is that fabulous or what? totally flexible, but with enough specific shapes to make one start thinking of specific stash items. for example, when i first looked at this, i thought, "ribbon, doily, postcard, flower!" i got everything right except the ribbon, which i swapped out for a punched paper strip. oh and i rotated the sketch ninety degrees clockwise, when the vintage postcard i wanted to use turned out to be tall instead of wide:

scan of a vintage postcard from my collection, reduced slightly and printed on kodak premium glossy photo paper; german scrap flower and doily from my stash; patterned paper: pink paislee, dcwv; gold cardstock: the paper co; florals: prima; border punch: recollections; ink: colorbox; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine

want to see another fabulous take, this time from the sketch mistress herself? head on over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ where you can also link up your card and see what others are making!


  1. great take on the sketch, Your card is beautiful.

  3. I can see the sketch in your gorgeous card and I love how you made it your own! The angelic image looks so pretty and the doily adds to the femininity factor beautifully!
