Can you believe we are going on our 3rd year of Sunday Sketches? A few weeks ago I asked if everyone would like me to do another round and the vote was unanimous. So we are back to SS001.
Nothing says Christmas like Real Red and Call Me Clover. And the mixed satin ribbon makes the perfect finishing touch. This ribbon is so soft and easy to tie and lays nice and flat for mailing.
I choose the Making Christmas Bright stamp set as it has this great circle shape that was perfect for my sketch. Now you don't always have to put a circle where a circle is. You could replace it with a square or other shape. Like the small circle, I replaced with a bow.
The sketch is just an idea and starting place, let your imagination take you away and get as creative as you like.

- Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Real Red cardstock in half to create your card base.
- Adhere a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock to the inside of the card.
- On the inside stamp "bright" in Call Me Clover ink.
- Adhere a 3 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of the All is Bright patterned paper to the card front.

- Tie a bow on the left-hand side and adhere to the card front at the edge of the pattern paper and about 3/4" from the bottom.
