I finally got a card made......... It's been so hot here 40c yesterday so the Air Conditioning was on all day. Today is much cooler the house is open to cool it down now we just need some rain!!!
This card is for Andrea's challenge over at Annabelle Stamps Blog. It's a sketch and a simple elegant one too. My card uses the Holly Branch set from Annabelle Stamps and I've used two of the holly stamps and a sentiment.
The base card is gold card with a layer of American Craft Card Rouge. I've stamped the holly over some GKD white pure luxury layering weight card and coloured with Koh-i-noor pencils and baby oil and this makes up the second layer.
The vertical strip is more of the gold card with a layer of white pure luxury and I've punched either side using a SU lace punch. Then a layer of red gross grain ribbon was added.
I stamped the sentiment one word at a time to break it up and so that it sits well within the central box. Then stamped the small holly to complete this box. This is layered to red and gold and attached to the card with fine foam tabs.
To complete the sketch I added the eight gold brads.
