SASSC40 Sketch Challenge: Merry & Bright

Oh yes, another wonderful sketch to help get the creativity flowing! Our Creative Corner posted this card sketch challenge on their blog and I had just the perfect idea of the Stampin' Up! supplies I wanted to use! The Merry Moments DSP (pg. 160) is the cutest double-sided paper! It contains the colors: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Old Olive, Garden Green, and Very Vanilla, which became the colors I used for my card. I love the Designer Series paper for that reason, they do the color designing and choices for you! A great time saver! The fun part for me was choosing which sheet of paper to use! To follow the sketch, I knew I wanted to die-cut some snowflakes, so I chose a piece of paper covered in snowflakes! Then I layered two snowflakes together, one cut out of Old Olve card stock, and one cut out of Very Vanilla card stock! The Corduroy Buttons (pg. 181) add texture with a soft look and feel, which I think goes great with snowflakes! My card base was cut at 4-1/4" out of Real Red card stock, scored and folded at the 'top'. Tip: I prefer this layout when I'm tying ribbon around a card since it's easier than cutting a spot for the ribbon to tie through!

Here's a peak at the great supplies I used for this card! The Merry Moments Designer Series paper is on page 160 of the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog! The Merry Details die is featured on page 21 of the Holiday Mini Catalog.
