And here is the sketch:
Isn't this a great sketch? I love the tilted panel and this lends itself to a clean and simple card.
I used the new stamp set, "Farmhouse Christmas". It is in the upcoming Holiday Catalog. I just absolutely love it! It has some fun images that take me back to my small town where I grew up. I used the "Merry Christmas" stamp. I stamped it twice. Once in Garden Green (okay, I didn't look close enough and used Garden Green when the color in this DSP is actually Mossy Meadow. Oops! I still think it works.) and once in Cherry Cobbler. I cut out the green sentiment with the Stitched Shapes dies and the Cherry Cobbler one with the dies that coordinate with the "Farmhouse Christmas" stamp set, "Farmhouse Framelits Dies". I then mounted the green circle onto a Cherry Cobbler scallop circle cut from the Layering Circle dies and adhered that to the card with dimensionals. I then added the "Merry Christmas" banner to the circle with dimensionals.
A little dry embossing and twine that coordinates and my card is complete.
Here is my color combination that I used:
I did add a sentiment from the stamp set and some stamped trim to decorate the inside of my card.
