Sketchy Thursdays has brought back their Second Chance Challenges for this. One winner will be chosen on Sketchy Thursdays for a sponsored prize and one winner chosen on Jingle Belles for their sponsored prize so you have two chances to win but you must use the Sketchy Thursdays sketch and a CHRISTMAS theme in order to qualify for the prizes.
I used my scraps from the Echo Park line that I ran all over town looking for at Christmas time. I distressed the edges and stitched on the 2 paper strips before I glued them down so that the card recipient wouldn't see the stitching on the inside of the card. I fussy cut the holly and then used the Glossy Accents crackle to give it a veiny leafy look. I stamped "Magical" in green and then sprinkled Walnut Ink embossing crystals immediately over the ink and heat embossed it to give it some luster. I didn't use versamark because I only wanted an itsy bitsy bit of embossing powder to stick and to see the green through it. Lastly, I used silver pearl embossing powder to create edges around the card.
Make sure to visit Sketchy Thursdays and Jingle Belles to see what our design teams did with this sketch!
