Gifts of Christmas

Today's sketch challenge at SCS (SC350) was a lot of fun!  I'm not usually very good at using angles in my cards, so I really enjoy pushing myself ... and that's what these challenges are all about.  I'm learning so much from them!

This is a very quick and easy card that is made with only SU! products.

SCS Sketch 350:

... and here's my card.  I added a couple of extra layers for some color.  Hope you like.

"Gifts of Christmas"

Stamps:  Gifts of Christmas (SU!)

I inked the stamp with the Stampin' Write markers and stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  I mounted all the pieces as shown in the picture above, popping up the main panel with dimensionals to add depth.

This afternoon Kelly stopped by to hang with me in the art studio for a couple of hours.  She needed to make birthday cards for both her MIL and FIL.  She used the same layout for both cards, but they are totally different.  Nice job Kel!!
