Freshly Made 400!


Hello,  Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating a huge milestone with their 400th challenge and I couldn’t pass up the chance to play along. Congrats to FMS!!!  Not only are there prizes, but the sketch is super fun too.  In fact, I loved it so much, I made two other cards that I will be posting later on.  I have been in the Christmas card mood as of late, and have made about 8 Christmas cards over the last ten days or so. It feels good to get started on these, as we all know the Holidays come rather quickly after Labor Day.

Here are some card details:  The poinsettia die is from Memory Box, the sentiment is from Verve. The DP is SU and there is a fun script embossing folder underneath the poinsettia (that is new to me) and is SU also.  The fun rounded stitched rectangle is from MFT. I make the decorative victorian edges with my Fiskars paper cutter.

Below is a close up so you can see the texture of the EF and the lines on the poinsettia too.

Happy crafting, Nanc’
