Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 37 :: Sketch

I really love the sketch for this Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge (original post here).  It's a very clean and simple design and I think it lends itself quite well to a Christmas card theme.  That's the way I've gone, anyway!


I started with a piece of red cardstock from my stash, and cut out the "Merry Christmas" from the "Simply Charmed" Cricut Cartridge (I hid the guides for the little faces in the "e" and "a").  I then matted that piece of red cardstock on some Vanilla Cardstock so that the vanilla came through the negative space left from the cut.

I then traced and cut out a portion of a circle from the edge of a piece "Be Merry - Cheer" patterned paper by Kaisercraft.  I made my bauble using my new AnnaBelle Stamps "Decorated Christmas" dies and stamps.

Now for the fun part - selecting an adorable Peachy Keen Face for my bauble!!  I just love the "Happy Lashes Assortment" faces and so I selected one for my bauble, one to fill in the "a" and the eyes only of another one to fill in the top of the "e".  They're so cute!

I popped my bauble up to give dimension and tied a bow with some metallic stranded DMC Cotton.  I added some faux stitching around the red cardstock, Cinnamon Stickles to the  brown dots of the patterned paper and put some bling above the bauble (in keeping with the sketch requirements).  I put my card together on some Kraft cardstock.  The entire card is 5.5 x 5.5.  I love it!
