November Sketch

Last week I completely forgot to show the card I made for the new LO idea on The Sketch File - so this week I'm blogging two cards.
First of all, here's this week's card
Materials and Tools
Little Princess papers; Funky Hand
Birthday Georgie image; Funky Hand
Baker's Twine
Spellbinders plain circle die to cut the aperture
*Sentiment printed directly onto the card blank
MFT Die'Namics bunting die
Sketch from The Sketch File

I created the sentiment in Paint Shop Pro using ding-bats for the scroll designs, then resized it for the circle I wanted to us.  A little bit of guesswork used for where to print it, then cut the circle aperture on the upper paper
Georgie is coloured digitally as that's the only way I can colour in fit to use on a card!
Here's the sketch:

For last week's card I turned the sketch upside down
and made the bunting shapes into Christmas Trees!
Materials and Tools
Stylish Tree papers;Funky Hand
Glitter card, Clear Rhinestone
Dies: Tree (Crafters Companion), Large snowflake (Spellbinders),
Sentiment background is made by separating the snowflakes from a snowflake border die - I think it's by Poppystamps, but can't confirm
Snowflake Punch, Small star punch
Sketch from The Sketch File

As you can see I've used fabulous papers from Funky Hand for both of these cards.  For the first card I printed them on textured Bazzill white card, for the second I've used a medium weight smooth white card to match the heavier card stock used for the base.

I love the trees on the second one, Kathy. How clever to make the sentiment for the first card.

Clever you using those dingbats to frame your sentiment Kathy. :)
