VW Christmas

So, it's Fusion time and we have a multi-colored inspiration photo for you this time as well as a very CAS sketch.
I decided to use the VW Kombi from the photo and the sketch to create my first Christmas card for 2019.

I bought this adorable set last Christmas but never got to use it.  I colored it up using the stamp packaging as my guide and then cut it out with my Scan n Cut.  I added foam tape to the back then set it to one side while I prepared my card base.

I die-cut a white panel the size of a card front and then die-cut a rectangle from the centre.  Onto a white top-folding card base, I added a piece of Watercolor Wash patterned paper - this is my go-to patterned paper for subtle backgrounds - I just love it!  I then adhered the white panel before adding the stamped image on top.  The sentiment comes from another NBUS set, but at least I've used one sentiment from it!

Thanks for visiting.  Please head over and check out the gorgeous cards made by the DT.

I'm going to link this up to Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.
