Hello everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here today. I thought for December I would change things up a bit and design a card sketch for the Sketchy Challenge, hoping that everyone would enjoy making Christmas cards. Here is my card: I used Creative Memories papers, Border Punch System and pen. With the leftover confetti bits from the border punch, I added them as ‘snowball’ embellishments. I used the Creative Memories marker to doodle on the 3 white triangle trees and to write my sentiment “let it snow.” Here are some samples of more cards that my friends made last weekend using the sketch: As you can see, the creative possibilities for this card sketch are limitless! I hope you join in the fun… because we will also be featuring many of your Christmas cards on Facebook and Instagram too! Remember to upload all your cards and layouts to the Sketchy Gallery!…

When you stamp several times or ‘values’ without reloading with ink, you can create your own patterned paper (learned from the great ink queen herself, Cathie Allan!) The leaves are cut with my Brother ScanNCut machine After cutting them from mixed media paper, I watercoloured them with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
