It is time for another Stamping 411 sketch challenge! This one I decided to mix up the background a little bit and use 4 different patterns in the Jolly Holiday Designer Paper Pack to represent the background of the sketch.
I started with a base of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. On it, I layered Very Vanilla cardstock. Then I cut the four patterns from Jolly Holiday into 1" wide stripes and placed them on the Very Vanilla. I cut a Top Note from Old Olive cardstock and stamped Merry & Bright from Bright Christmas in Basic Black in the corner. I wrapped the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon around the back and made a bow for the front.
For the Poinsettia, I stamped the leaf from Stampin' Up!'s French Foliage 11 times with Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink on Real Red cardstock and cut them out. I used the larger leaf and stamped it twice with Old Olive Classic Ink on Old Olive cardstock. I punched a 1 1/4 circle from scrap paper and began adhering the petals to the circle…back row along the edge and then filling in closer to the middle of the circle on top. I added Pearls to the center for some extra bling…and three graduated sizes along the top of the Top Note diecut. I used Stampin' Dimensionals behind the circle for the Poinsettia and also popped up the Old Olive leaves.
I love how this turned out! Let me know what you think! Make sure to check out what the rest of the Design Operators did on Stamping 411 this week with the sketch!
Have a great weekend…I get to go with my future daughter-in-law to shop for the dress! Woohoo!
