Today’s Sketch Challenge (SC575) looked simple, yet interesting, so I gave it a try. My card is fairly CAS (clean & simple), made easier because it’s made up of scraps, leftovers & die cuts already made.
The white stitched frame, pink doily, pink circle, arrow & hearts were already cut & just hanging around. The doily isn’t actually a full one..just what you see here, so I tucked it partially under the white frame. The narrow black inside the white was another frame just hanging out so everything worked today. Well, except my internet..it’s been going on little coffee breaks all day. So annoying!! The only newly cut items are the big Happy and the little embossed heart bg.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today instead of making a tag, I put a tag on my ornament on my Christmas card. I really love this big, ornate ornament die so I cut it & the bow out of a metallic gold card stock, then backed the ornament w/ a white circle die cut. The little tag was die cut then I gold embossed the small Christmas on it & edged it w/ a gold Krylon pen.
The paper on the left was die cut using one of the smaller matting basics then I used a pierced rectangle on it. The rectangles were not the same size so I had to move it around & do 2 sides at a time to get the piercing on it. I added a couple of strips of metallic gold on either side & then strip of another pattern of the same paper on the right of them. The large white bg was die cut w/ the largest pierced rectangle & I gold embossed the Merry Merry down the side.
Here’s the inside using some left over pieces. The Merry Merry was stamped repeatedly on the white piece using Brilliance gold.

The Ways to Use It Challenge (WT560) has us putting a Christmas sock on our project. So I have a Christmas stocking w/ a button & bow topper.
I fussy cut a stocking shape & stamped it w/ one band of a woven plaid image then used a red Micron pen to add the borders on each band. A polka dot stamp & white pigment ink were used on the red topper, heel & toe. The woodgrain background was stamped onto a lt kraft using Memento desert sand. I added the ribbon & button and a couple of Candi dots to balance out the empty corner & I used a stitched rectangle on the white card front.
