I hope the first two days of the work week was good to you. Mine was fairly typical. Tomorrow I head back out to Palm Springs for the rest of the week to finish, hopefully, my project there. I'm hoping that like here on the coast, the temps have cooled somewhat.
Since I'm going to be gone for the rest of the week, I wanted to get my Paper Players challenge card done last night. Jaydee has a fun sketch for us this week .
I decided to use some of the new SU items from the Holiday Catalog. This catalog is jam packed with awesome goodies.
The card base is SU Crumb Cake and the patterned paper is from a We R Memory Keepers 6 x 6" snow themed pack. I stamped the tree from the new Winter Woods set using Garden Green. The three in the back ground are "stamped off" before stamping on the paper. The one in front is stamped three times to make it darker. After the stamping was done, I cut the paper per the sketch. (I forgot to cut off the bottom of the third panel, darn!) I wanted to use Peace as the greeting and the new Christmas Traditions Punch Pack worked well. I CASE'd the idea of the banner behind the punched image from the catalog. I used a twine bow at the top and some enamel shapes for embellishments.
The inside uses more trees and the sentiment from the Winter Woods set.
I love this sketch and will use it more. I have my monthly crafty get together on 9/15 and the theme is Christmas. I plan on doing a quick M&T with some new DSP using Jaydee's sketch for the ladies.
I'm looking forward to some US Open Tennis tonight, and I have to pack.
