Sunday Sketch

I couldn’t resist doing a sketch of this adorable Christmas card. Yes, I’m already working on Christmas projects, even though I was just working on fall crafts a couple of days ago. Stay tuned for a couple of days to see more of the winter and holiday crafts I’ve got up my metaphorical sleeve.

For this card, I started with a very simple pattern and a few white squares. I knew I wanted to use some red and white punched circles and these amazing 3D peppermint stickers, so the color scheme was already coordinated!

The small sentiment worked perfectly in the center square in the bottom row, and the hand-cut gingerbread men fit perfectly. And I always have some glittered acrylic dots on hand ... you know, just in case.

Ready to make this sketch your own? It’s a simple design that can be used in just about every season and theme. What will you choose?

Measure out your squares first, then arrange them on a lightly patterned paper. You can always make the squares a little smaller and mat them on another color of card stock to add a little more dimension to your layout.

The sketch doesn’t have the two large images that I have on my card, but you can add them in or choose one larger image and center it. That’s what is so much fun about making a sketch personal.
