52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Sketch

 CCT - Design For Badge

Hello everyone. I am very excited to announce that I have been asked to be a member of the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Design team. Our first challenge for 2017 is a sketch challenge. If you invert the sketch you will see how I came up with my card design. My card to very simple, yet it has that touch of elegance. I use a wonderful die from Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Christmas Tree Greeting. I cut it out twice – once with the green glitter paper and once with the white glitter paper. Next I cut a piece of the white glitter paper 5.5 x 4.25, green 5.25 x 4, white 5 x 3.75, green 4.75 x 3.25, white 4.25 x 3 and layered them on top of each other. I slightly offset the die cut tree and glued to the top. For the final step I taped the card topper to card base.
