Freshly Made Sketches #57

Posted on

Hello everyone and welcome to Friday! I love it when the week is over and we are going into the weekend! I had a downline meeting last night which is always fun. I love to to see everyone and to swap. I have a busy weekend ahead, tomorrow Great Adventure for fright fest and then into Manhattan on Sunday for a bit. A full but fun weekend for sure!

Before we get to today’s post I want to take a minute to thank Narelle for choosing my card for last week’s Freshly Made Sketches. You can see my original post here and the Freshly Made Sketches post here. Now on to this week’s challenge. This week LeAnne has given us this super CAS sketch…

I think this is the most CAS card I have ever made. The base of my card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. The bottom half of the background is Crumb Cake that I embossed with the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The top half is just a piece of Raspberry Ripple. I used a piece of Raspberry Ripple 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon across the seam that I adhered around the back with some Sticky Strip before adhering the panel to the card with SNAIL. The images are from the Affection Collection Stamp Set and the Merry & Type Stamp Set. The base image is stamped in Crumb Cake and the “Merry and Bright” is stamped in Raspberry Ripple. I used the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies to cut it out and mounted it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Like I said, super CAS and also a great workshop card that could be easily stepped up! I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Freshly Made Sketches card. Thank you, as always, for visiting and your comments. I appreciate it! Have a fun day! πŸ™‚
