Sunday Sketch

Have you started putting your Christmas cards together yet? Start crafting them today with this adorable sketch - you'll be able to use it with a variety of papers and colors, making each card an individual work of art.

Layer two background papers, a solid color and a light pattern. Then mat a piece of decorator paper on a coordinating color and tilt it slightly off center.

You can use two images for the top square and circle, or you can make one another block of pattern.

A small sentiment in the blank space at the top of the card will finish off your design.

For my card, I found three Christmas cookie-themed images and stacked them for a cute layout. The background paper is a very light peppermint candy pattern. Then I cut a gingerbread man image out of a piece of decorator paper and matted it on a light color, layering it slightly askew on the right hand side.

The square cookie is also from a piece of decorator paper, matted on a pink solid card stock. The dove cookie is a card stock die cut layered on the very top.

I finished it off with alphabet stickers for my personalized phrase.
