Freshly Made Sketches #111

Hi,

I just really liked this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches - so perfect and the ornament on it just calls out for a Christmas card. This sketch may go into my favorites file - to be used over and over again....


But for now it is the holiday theme.


I used my favorite Sizzix Embossing Folder. The snowflake is from Memory Box, but it gave me grief again. It would not cut through the glitter paper, despite all the tricks I know now - extra shimming, wax paper, running it through the Big shot in different positions and multiple times.....I just gave up and pretended I wanted all those little pieces still in there, after I fuzzy cut a fair amount of the outside.... I colored some of those with Copics - looks quite nice after all....The sentiment is Mama Elephant Merry Greetings


So hard to photograph the glitz - the closeup shows it best - it looks really pretty!



I am also linking this card with the CHNC challenge - Anything Christmas

Love the colors on this. I have found that a few of my MB dies are hard to use as well and have better luck using a lighter weight paper.

Gorgeous card Cornelia, the snowflake looks great with the pieces in. I have a metal plate I use with a lot of the MB intricate dies, I still need to do a lot of poking out but it usually works. I don't have this die though. Love your take on this sketch too, Cathy x
