Happy New Year! Are you ready to jump back into making Christmas cards for 2020? I am thrilled to be this week’s guest designer at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. We are working with the sketch to the right. In looking at the sketch, I immediately saw Rudolph jumping from a rooftop.
First, I created my background. Using My Favorite Things Snowfall Background, I white embossed the snow on blue cardstock and mounted the panel on my card base. Next, I tackled the roof and roofline. The roof is a very thin piece of wood veneer. Though not the product I used, check out the wood veneer adhesive sheets at Ellen Hutson. The roof eave is the middle strip in the sketch. I punched a line of icicles from blue glitter adhesive cardstock using a Martha Stewart punch and adhered over the wood veneer.
Second, I thought about the sentiment I wanted to repeat 3x. Hohoho seemed perfect. I used Walter and Winnie’s HOME die-cut, trimming off the “me” to create HoHoHo. I die-cut the Essentials by Ellen Leaping Deer from gold Mirracard for my central “star” image. I didn’t use this deer in last season’s cards so it needed a little TLC. I added a pink rhinestone for the nose. The deer is foam mounted on the card base.
Easy peasy. I am looking forward to seeing your creations from this week’s sketch! Don’t forget to stop by each of the design team members for inspiration and to leave a little lovin’.0
