Welcome to another challenge at the CLASSroom Anniversary Celebration! I am so thankful to be part of this fabulous place of inspiration, learning and an incredible team. Congratulations Ellen on five wonderful years!
Today I have a fun sketch challenge to get you creating this holiday weekend. I think you'll enjoy it! Feel free to flip or turn the sketch and let your creativity run wild! I've designed it to be a 4.25"x5.5" card size but you can also make it taller or alter it to be a square card design. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Here's my take on the sketch....
As you can see, I stayed pretty true to the sketch and had fun getting into the holiday mood. Christmas is coming soon, don't you know?!
The circular element on this sketch is a great place to stamp or, as I've done, turn it into an embellishment. I like to cut the side pieces in random sizes and it is a great place to use up scraps. Make sure you keep the edges in nice clean and square cuts so that you can butt each layer up to the next for a really smooth seamless look.
To create my sentiment, I've used some Tim Holtz Kraft Resist letters. I love how vintage they look and they are fabulous for inking any color you want. I've sponged Barn Door Distress Ink on them to make them coordinate my project.
The Baker's Twine is tied around my card and a gorgeous Maya Road Antique Button Trinket makes the card extra special.
Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend and happy creating!
