JAI 90 Sketch Challenge
Just Add Ink 93 - Colour Combo

Clean & Simple 166

Hi there

Despite my best intentions, I have failed again in my quest to be well organised for Christmas, so it's time to up the ante on my Christmas card production.  If you are also still trying to get your cards done, I hope I can give you some inspiration as well.

I love this week's sketch from Clean & Simple. The tag embellishment is very appealing and flexible. Here is the sketch -


As usual, I have taken a few liberties by changing the design into a DL shaped card, which suits the size of the tag I've used. I've gone with traditional colours on this one, but I have plans to make others in non traditional Christmas colours. For the main embellishment I have used my new Spellbinders Poinsettia die. I've sponged the edges of all the layers and popped them up on dimensionals. I love the contrast of the crisp white and the bright red and green.

What a beautiful card, Judy. That poinsettia die cuts so nicely. I really loved that DSP, and it looks great on this card.
