Freshly Made Sketches


Hi,  The card I have for you today was such a bear for me to photograph and looks a lot better in real life. I thought the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches looked kind of fun so I took some of the alcohol ink backgrounds I made yesterday and used them for this simple card. You must look closely to see the four strips of white paper I have framing in the HO HO HO. Those strips were made with my Fiskars cutter. The letter die is MFT and the snowflakes are a Memory Box Die-on purple sparkly paper.

The fun background paper was made with alcohol inks including a lot of Silver Mixative. I may have gotten carried away. 😉 I have quite a lot of paper left for another card!

Take care, Nanc’

  1. Great card design and I love the colors.

  2. Looks like you had fun with the alcohol ink backgrounds and found a way to use them in a different way and still have lots to make more. Love the CAS style.

  3. Those inky letters look wonderful! I haven’t ventured into alcohol inks! Sweet card! Glad you joined us at FMS!

  4. I need to do some alcohol backgrounds. Yours looks wonderful, Nancy, and I love it peeking through the letters. And you still have your Fiskars scissors? I think I gave most of mine away. I just checked and I have 4 of them. I haven’t used them in years.

  5. I love how you have framed your snowflakes! Amazing what you can do with alcohol inks, isn’t it? Great cas card- thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  6. I love this “Ho, Ho, Ho” made of snowflakes for the O and the letters die-cut out of an alcohol ink made background. Gorgeous take on the sketch. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
