Sunny Sunday Sketch - Week 21

Time for another Sunny Sunday Sketch - it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!

Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year so when DD asked me to design a class for some of her friends to make Christmas Cards, I was THRILLED!!!

Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

This is just one of the cards the girls will be making next week. I decided on two 3 X 3 note cards, two 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 cards and one 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 card that is OTT (over the top). My hope is that they will take these cards home and show them to their moms and that then their moms will want to book classes too! How fun would that be?

That being said, if you're a youth leader in the GTA and want me to come to one of your meetings to make cards, I'd be THRILLED!!! The class is only $10 for 5 cards and would make great gifts.

The sketch was made using MDS which you can get as part of the digital starter kit during the AMAZING promotion Stampin' UP! is having. You can get the complete starter kit (either standard or digital) for only $107.50! That's half price! shipping, handling or taxes! What a FABULOUS deal! BUT, you only have until November 30th. Contact me ASAP if you'd like more details!

To make the card, I used a piece of Always Artichoke cut to 3 X 6" and scored at 3". The next layer is a piece from the fabulous Deck the Halls DSP which is available in the Holiday Mini Catalog, but only till December 31st! To add some texture, I ran the Whisper White Cardstock through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Embossing Folder.

I stamped the image from Jolly Bingo Bits in Cherry Cobbler and added a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds, because...really...what teenage girl DOESN'T like glitter?

What do you think?

INK: Cherry Cobbler
PAPERS: Whisper White and Always Artichoke Cardstock; Deck the Halls DSP
ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, Impressions Folder, Dazzling Diamonds, Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Stampin'!
