Freshly Made Christmas Wishes

Happy Wednesday!  I am both humbled and thrilled to be hosting this week’s challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!  Humbled because I have to create a sketch after 10 of the best card makers in the world, literally, have presented awesome sketches for you to create with.   Did you know our team at FMS represents multiple continents?  Thrilled because I get to see over 100 unique and fabulous creations made with my sketch.  And here’s my clean and simple sketch: FMS163 Cindy I thought this sketch was another great opportunity to use the Ornamental Pine stamp set.  I jazzed it up a bit by fussy cutting one of the pine cones and stamping two more directly on the pine branch.  The Early Espresso covers the Garden Green wonderfully, so you don’t see a blend of two colors.  I added Multi-Purpose Glue to the white spots and sprinkled on some Gold Glitter, just like the pine cones that will soon be on my mantle. The third (center) pine cone is popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  FMS163-Ornamental-PineThis is a super-simple card to make and is mail-friendly; just right for making multiple cards to send out. I hope you are inspired by it, and will play along with our challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches!   Don’t forget to stop by first to see what the ‘Clean Team’ has created to inspire you.

SUPPLIES:  Stamp Set:  Ornamental Pine;  Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Trim The Tree DSP Stack;  Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Early Espresso;  Stampin’ Write Marker:  Early Espresso;  Tools and Accessories:  Gold 1/8″ Ribbon, Gold Glitter, Multi-Purpose Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Project Life Corner Punch.

    This is an amazing sketch, Cindy – one of those sketches you can use over and over and have it look different each time! And your card is amazing – I just love those pinecones and pine needles and the simple font of the sentiment is perfect.
