So I was struggling with the sketches in the Sept Card Sketch Challenge as they were not coming to me. I’m not a CAS card person so I was struggling this month. While I was waking up Wednesday morning this ideal came to me for Sketch #2. Instead of a banner I ripped the paper and instead of the stars I put an image there. This card ended up being CAS and I love it. I used sparkle paper from Doodlebug to represent snow and shiny paper underneath to represent the compressed snow! Hope it makes sense as to the scene I was setting!
I used the outline and colored versions of this digital stamp. I wanted presents on the sleigh but the colored version had them in pink and black and that wasn’t working for my Christmas card. I used the outline version and colored the presents in Photoshop. The girl was beautiful dressed for Christmas in one of the pre-colored images so I just cut her out and glued her on top of the outline version!
