I am getting tons of mileage out of my scraps from the Comfort & Joy Collection. I so love the mix of prints in this collection. I decided to go slightly non-traditional and mount my pieces on black cardstock. The black really sets off the pattern papers. My card is based on the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches–
My overall card size is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. My pattern paper strips measure 1″ x 4″. My sentiment panel is 2″ x 3″. The poinsettia was fussy cut from the same pattern paper and popped up with 3-D foam tape for added dimension. Liquid Pearls was added to the center as an accent. An additional 2″ x 3″ rectangle of black glitter cardstock adds a little bling. Super simple!
The inside was finished out with a strip of coordinating paper. My sentiment is from the Craft with Heart cardmaking subscription. Close To My Heart offers cardmaking and scrapbooking kit subscriptions! I am a huge fan of the exclusive stamp sets that are included in the Cardmaking Kits.
