MMSC#31 and QKD 12 Days of Christmas Project #9




I enjoyed this sketch challenge because I never would have cut a circle in half and positioned it this way on the card front. But I love the finished look. I chose to make a gate card, another first for me. The layered sentiment is glued down only on the right side, allowing the card to open. A photo of the inside is directly below.
Products used: Queen Kat Designs stamps: berry frame from Give Thanks set; sentiment from Christmas Greetings set; Bo Bunny's Back to Backs reversible heavy weight paper: St. Nick Mistle Toe for the gate card base and 12" St. Nick Cut Outs for the scalloped circle on the card front and the Letter to Santa placed on the inside of the card; Memento Tuxedo Black and Cottage Ivy dye inks; Marvy Twinklette red glitter marker; Ranger Diamond Stickles.
Below is the inside of the card, showing the reverse of the patterned paper and the cutout I chose.
