Hi and welcome to the last Freshly Made Sketch challenge of 2018! This challenge, designed by my Antipodean neighbour, Narelle Farrugia, will stay open until 31 December so you have plenty of time to play along.
Now I really think Narelle was messing with my head when she came up with this sketch. I have a fear of angled panels on cards and I really dislike ovals 😄 To combat both those obstacles, I came up with this card:
So the angled panels are white-on-white and not too noticeable and the oval transformed into a poinsettia, so all is well with the world again! To add some interest both the angled panels were die-cut with a stitched rectangle die and then embossed - one with a 3D woodgrain folder and one with a knitting pattern folder. I added them to the card base after dry-embossing that with a stitched rectangle die.
The poinsettia pieces were cut with white cardstock and then I spritzed them with gold shimmer spray before assembling the flower. I added that to the card base and then gold-embossed the simple sentiment. Here's a better shot of the texture in the background.
Thanks for visiting! The DT have outdone themselves for our last challenge of the year, so I hope you'll head over and check them out.
I'm playing along with Sweet Stampin' Challenge who are looking for last minute Christmas cards. Luckily this has a stamped sentiment on it!😄
