Well, I broke down and finally made a Christmas card. I wouldn't have....but it matched the sketch challenge on RAQ's card challenge on the Cricut Messageboard....and it used punches which is what Practical Scrappers is using this week....so here it is: the first Christmas card of 2009.
Used Doodlecharms snowman: cut shadow on regular and layers in blue metallic....cut brown twigs, cut regular white....and layers white. All cut at 2 1/2" Went around the edges with blue and green pencil...then silver metallic ink. Attached the layered nose (ink, gel pen, and watercolors) googly eyes, inked cheeks, and penciled mouth. Put on an orange ribbon knotted for a scarf...and a punched heart...and buttons. The hat is the elf's hat from PDDU....cut at 3" and layered. The paper is American crafts and it made this sketch easy! Snowflakes are 2 Martha Stewart punches....layered....and button attached. Sentiment is computer generated....cut with decorative scissors.....and inked with the silver.
