Ho-Ho-Ho

Hello everyone! I have a card to share today for this week’s challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch. Our sketch for this week was provided by Joni Andaya, and I love it ~ Perfect for a fun Christmas card!








I die cut my stitched circles, and added some texture to the alphas with the canvas impression plate. Then, I embossed the snowflakes in white so it would read as ‘ho-ho-ho’ and stamped ‘Merry Christmas...ya know, like something Santa would say! Finally, I added patterned paper and a few enamel dots.


Well, that’s it for me ~ I hope everyone is doing well and having a great weekend! Thank you all so much for stopping by!
Barb
