Stampin' Up! Yuletide Pasture Christmas Card

 I think this set is darling!  

It didn't take me any time at all to design this fun card using only this stamp set, ink, paper and a little linen thread.  

I stamped the images first, then cut them out.  I find it easier to get everything centered that way.  

The images were colored using blender pens and ink pads.  Water color pencils or blender pens could also be used.  

Here are the measurements for this card:
  • Early Espresso Card Base 9 3/4" x 4 1/4", scored at 4 1/4"
  • Gold Foil Sheet 4" x 4", 4" x 1"
  • Shaded Spruce 3 3/4" x 3 3/4", 3 3/4" x 3/4"
  • Whisper White 3 1/2" x 3 1/2", 3 1/2" x 1 9/16", insert 4" 4"

Stampin' Up! Nature's Beauty Paired with Feels Like Frost

I am planning some simple Christmas cards for a few special ladies to make in December.  When I ran across this Sketch Challenge on the CAS Colours & Sketches blog I knew I had found the perfect inspiration.

I used a stunning piece of Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper for the background, mounted on a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  The stamped fox is from Nature's Beauty and the sentiment is from Yuletide Pasture.  

This is the first Sketch Challenge I have participated in. 😀 I hope this sketch and the card I made for it inspire your creativity!
