Inspire.Create.Challenge #053

It’s that time again! Our newest challenge from Inspire.Create.Challenge is a Sketch Challenge! These are probably my favorite challenges since it gives me a little direction. Sometimes I use the sketch the way it is and other times I change it a little bit.

Today’s card I used the sketch the way it is and created my first Christmas card of the year! Are you creating Christmas cards yet to get a head start?


I started off with a Cherry Cobbler card base. This is my favorite red in our color family for traditional Christmas cards. I used our new Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper that comes in a 6″ x 6″ pack. I love all the plaid! One side on all designs have a hint of gold foiling to it!

This helped me decided to bring in even more gold into my card.

So I grabbed some gold foil paper and cut it in strips to add underneath my Wrapped in Plaid layer. I adhered it all down with liquid glue.

I used the Merry Christmas to All bundle for both the die cut and the stamped sentiment. I die cut the Merry out of the gold foil paper with some adhesive sheet on the back to make it easier to add to the card.

I stamped Christmas in Cherry Cobbler onto Whisper White and cut to the size. I layered the Merry over the Whisper White strip.

I did add some fine tip glue to the Merry but it didn’t add much to it. I finished the card off with some Bling, using the new Holiday Rhinestone pack!

 I hope you give this challenge a try and share what you created! Check out the other cards rom the Design Team by clicking below or the image at the beginning of the post. image2
