Welcome Christmas & PP20

I love wakening up on Sundays to see with the Paper Players have come up with for their Challenge! This week is a great Sketch which I could have done 5 cards as soon as I saw it! But here is the one I ended up with.

The Scallop Square Duo is one of my favorite items from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini catalog. It just gives my main image a extra wow factor.
Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding is another great item from the Holiday is so soft and flexibe and it gives a great texture.
I used the Hemp twine to make little bows around the cherry cobble Designer Buttons.
I always used the Color Spritzer tool (my first time using it) on the main image just to give it a little vintage feel.

  1. Great job with the sketch Stephanie! I love that holiay stamp set. I almost used that Square Scallop Die as well for another card I was making but changed it up at the last second. I am so happy you play with us. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog this morning!

  2. Another gorgeous creation! I love the CAS feel.

  3. that touch of spritzer is fantastic. loved the twine on the buttons, too. beautiful card and not "over the top" vintage :) hugs, m

  4. I love what you did with this set---one of my favorites, and the hemp feature is very cool~

  5. Love the use of the color spritzer tool and the buttons with twine! Great interpretation of the sketch. Thanks for joining The Paper Players this week!
