a little bit sketchy

...that's what we are at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ this fortnight, thanks to the sketch-creation skills of miss stephanie, who's made this beautiful roadmap to inspire our cards!

and here's my card:

santa illustration and text paper: october afternoon;sentiment snipped from an echo park journal card; other patterned paper: photo play, american crafts and dcwv; ink: colorbox; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape

you can see i've been 100% faithful to the sketch, because obviously it's a GREAT sketch that lends itself to so many different ideas and styles! i used an older october afternoon vintage-inspired santa illustration for my focal point, then filled out with a fussy cut sentiment banner and some red paper scraps. super, suuuuuper easy and yet i love how it turned out!

be sure to hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see stephanie's card and start planning your own!


  1. Fabulous sketch, and you certainly did it justice with that awesome Santa, love the papers you used. Awesome job.
