December Newsletter Project
Here is the card included in this month’s newsletter.
I just can’t seem to stop making these poinsettias from the Merry Minis punch pack. It’s so quick and easy and looks really cool! So, after browsing back to Mojo Monday’s Sketch 266, I was all set.
Stamp set: Greetings of the Season (Holiday catalog)
Paper: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Very Vanilla, Festival of Prints DSP stack (Holiday catalog)
Accessories: Merry Minis punch pack (Holiday catalog), Early Espresso Stampin’ emboss powder, Labels collection framelits, Basics glimmer brads
It’s funny how I picked the papers. I started with the back layer (the long banner piece). I liked that particular pattern. Then, I went through the pack to find complementary colors. This is the first time I really used this pack, and I must say, all of the choices makes it so HARD! 🙂
Anyway, I ended up following the sketch pretty closely, which includes the bottom horizontal strip. I was going to leave it off. When I (temporarily) placed a strip there, though, I noticed that it pulls the design together. It doesn’t seem that way until you leave off that piece. I’m always amazed about things like that.
I chose the sentiment primarily because it fit! I mean, all of the sentiments in the set work great; I just chose the one in the right size. 🙂
