Festive Friday #17 - Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! I'm back today with another Festive Friday and this week we have a sketch for you to work with. I actually found this one quite a challenge to get to work... any one else have that problem from time to time? :) But eventually I was happy with what I came up with.

Heres the sketch:

And this is what I came up with:

I used Soft suede, crumb cake and very vanilla for my colours and used the images from 'Tidings of Joy'. I stamped the star twice, coloured one which I then fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals. Mary and baby Jesus are coloured with blender pens and ink pads, then also fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals. The sentiment was inked with markers, so that I could fit it into the circle. The very vanilla circles are 1 1/4" and layered onto soft suede 1 3/8" circles. I placed a length of crumb cake seam binding behind the circles. The very vanilla panel is embossed with the 'vintage wallpaper' EB folder. This is quite a simple card, but I really like how it turned out and I think it would be an easy one to mass produce. 

Now over to you to join in on the fun! Head over to Nicole's blog to see what the other design team members have come up with and have a go at the sketch.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Lovely clean & simple card Sarah! I too was a bit stumped by the sketch :) I like how you've used separated images from "Tidings of Joy" - I have this set but I am yet to ink it up...shame on me! :)

  2. Hi Sarah, this is such a cute card - I love it! A great way to use that gorgeous set. Well done x
