I've been busy today making cards for this week's Stampendous Saturday Sketch Challenge. There's actually no sketch to work with this week, the only guideline is to make a Christmas card. How fun! I had so many ideas running through my head, and couldn't decide on just one, so I made 4 or 5 cards this week. I was on a roll! My creativity was flowing!
This little elf makes me smile! Isn't he cute? It may be hard to see in the photo, but I added Red Stickles to the tips of his little elfin shoes and Liquid Applique for the "fur" trim on his jacket. They both add a fun texture to cards. To add a little more texture, I used my Scor-it to score evenly spaced lines on the green strip. Until I get a Cuttlebug, this is an easy way to add texture to paper. I had a lot of fun working with kraft paper, I'll have to do it again soon!
I've got more to show you.....stay tuned. In the meantime, take time to get inky!
