Happy Sunday and a Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to my fellow Canadians!
Here is this week's sketch! I think this may be one of my all time favorites!
Some dimensions for you:
Card Base:4-1/4 x 5-1/2
Main Layer: 3-13/16 x 4-9/16 (lol, sorry, I wasn't originally planning on matting this piece and when I went back to measure it, I was like really??)
Main Layer Mat: 3-7/8 x 4-5/8
Scallops: 1/2 x 4-5/8
Sentiment Strip: 7/8 x 2-3/4
Again- these are JUST a suggestion. Feel free to interpret the sketch however works best for you!
Here is my card! I decided to do something different from the flower suggestion of the sketch. I need to rebuild my Christmas card stash, so I figured, I better start now!
I stamped one of the images from Vintage Ornaments II as my background on Hawaiian Shores. I also stamped another one of these images on watercolor paper and embossed it using Ranger Platinum embossing powder. I watercoloured it with various distress inks. The scallops are out of Harvest Gold and were cut using the Small Scallop Border die. The final touch was a bit of a silver frame for the background and then a sentiment from the same stamp set on a Summer Sunrise strip.
