Season’s Blessings Bundle by Stampin’ Up! was used to create this week’s Sunday Sketch Card. With this stamp set you can create baskets of poinsettia bouquets. You will find two fun baskets one that is stamped and a intricate die cut basket from the Seasonal Basket Dies. The flower and leaves in this set will help provide lots of inspiration for Christmas and fall cards.
Sketches can help to get your creativity fired up. You can create the card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You may want to turn the layout so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it horizontally. Let your imagination run wild there is no right or wrong way!
The bright Granny Apple Green cardbase paired with the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper creates a bold statement. Do you like out of the box Christmas colors or traditional? If you like traditional this paper is right for you!
