The challenge is using Card Sketches layouts from any week, store bought Christmas cards and hand stamping all incorporated into one card.
I used week 48 for my sketch using ovals. The white panel had the oval cut out first then hand stamped with Soft Swirls and I inked up the rubber with a VersaMark pen to keep the hearts off. I used heat and stick and glitter, stamped on snowflakes, freehand lines were added last and edges sponged in navy.
I used a white Brilliance ink pad and direct to paper for the snow on the card base, then stamped in snowflakes. The trees and moon are punched out. The trees were sponged for texture and snowflakes stamped on then tacky glued in place. The moon is vellum glued on with Diamond Glaze and this is one time you want the adhesive to show under the vellum to give the moon a more realistic look. The snowman is one of four on a card and the present, candy cane and cupcake are from the same card; all are glued in place. I did do some coloring on the hat and scarf to tone down the orange color; I also had to draw in his arm.
