Freshly Made Sketches #553

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #553!


This lovely sketch from Cécile Ribon inspired another Christmas card from me. Our heat wave had me initially thinking snowflakes but in the end I couldn't resist creating a glitter paper and vellum poinsettia in snowflake colors.

A little Tumbled Glass Distress Ink was blended on the center of the panel first and then a trio of rectangles were cut to form a stencil for the a little more ink. The Memory Box Bold Christmas Greetings sentiment is heat embossed in Ranger Liquid Platinum before the layered poinsettia is added.

A few Pretty Pink Posh gems add a little extra glitter to finish the design.

I hope you check out the amazing Clean Team designs and play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

Thanks for stopping by,

  2. Oh this is so gorgeous! The ink-blended squares look fabulous behind that wonderful poinsettia!

  3. Oh, those layers on the poinsettia are gorgeous! Such a pretty card with the splash of blue.

  4. Love the softening of the stenciling and that flower is spectacular!
