Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #441

Time for a new challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge! This super versatile sketch will work for all occasions. With the holiday season fast approaching, I went with a clean and simple Christmas card with the Holly & Ivy Collection. Here is the original sketch design-

My card was created with help from the Holly & Ivy Picture My Life cards. While these cards are created for scrapbooking, they make quick and easy cards! The plaid print is a PML card that was cut down for the sketch. The Joy sentiment is also from a PML card. You get 24 double sided cards in each pack. They are an easy way to stretch your paper pack with coordinating prints and work for all papercrafts! Here is a sampling of some of the other designs that are included-

To create my card, I started with a card base of Harbour cardstock. I cut down the plaid PML card to 4″ x 2 1/2″ and cut a matching rectangle out of Mint cardstock. The Joy panel was layered in White Daisy cardstock. The Ivy cluster is from the Holly & Ivy sticker sheet. It was mounted with 3-D foam tape for additional dimension with loops of silver embellishing thread added behind the cluster. A simple bow and border of embellishing thread was added along the bottom. A few silver glitter gems finish off the card.

All supplies by Close To My Heart:

  • X7273S Holly & Ivy Paper Packet w/Sticker Sheet
  • X7273C Holly & Ivy Coordinating Cardstock Pack
