Christmas Cards 2012: Using Sketches

Hello dearies, 

I hope you had a great weekend.  Yesterday I posted about how you can get a little burned out from creating holiday card-after-card and how sometimes the mojo disappears.  So, (yesterday's and) the next few Christmas Card posts are just going to be great ways to get those juices flowing and get you back on your game.  (You can view yesterday's post here).  So, today's post will be about using sketches!

Sketches are great for me to get the juices flowing.  It is my #1 go-to "I need inspiration station" option.  I love using sketches!!!  You can interpret them however you want to, and its nice when what you make comes out completely different from the original.  So here are four cards I created using sketches:

Cards measure 6x4.  Products used: cardstock (red and white); ribbon and paper strips: received in a swap; Santa and reindeer stickers: Recollections; Ho Ho Ho stamp: unknown.

The sketch that I used for the above cards is from Two Peas in a Bucket.

Cards measure 6 1/2 x 5.  Products used: kraft paper: Recollections; all patterned paper, Santa die cut, and sentiment: Moxxie; other: white pen.

Cards measure 6 1/2 x 5.  Products used: kraft paper: Recollections; all patterned paper, elf die cut, and sentiment: Moxxie; other: white pen.
These two cards featuring these starry-eyed cuties was created for a sketch challenge on Club CK.  It was still a sketch challenge, however, it was to create a card using a layout sketch.  Kinda different, huh?  I loved this twist on a sketch challenge!  Here is the sketch: 


And, in case you're wondering, the starry-eyed cuties above are a part of the Party at the Pole collection by Moxxie.  You should check it out!  It's adorable!!!

Have a good week!
