SC 134 Challenge

Yup, it's Wednesday and that means it's the Sketch Challenge (SC) at Split Coast Stampers! It's really the only challenge (so far) that I participate in. I LOVE learning and doing new layouts for cards. This one has been around for a while but I'd never done one. I've thought about it but never have. But since it was the Wednesday challenge I just HAD to!!



I used the Holiday Tag Team snowman and the snowflake stamp. The words are from Cold Play. Two of my favorite sets!!! I LOVE snowmen and snowflakes! And I also LOVE the color purple. SO I thought I'd try purple snowflakes. Though the photo turned out more blue but that's ok too.



My card stock colors are Lovely Lilac, Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White. The snowman was done using Black Staz-on on watercolor paper. I used the Eggplant grosgrain ribbon to hide where the papers merge. I also used the punch to make the scallops. I added some dots on the Lovely Lilac scallops with the white gel pen, it just needed something more down there.



The measurements for the main part of this card is 4 1/4" x 8 1/2". You fold it to measure 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and then you add the top piece, placing it far enough up to equal 5 1/2" in overall length. It's called a "Tent" card and the top part doesn't do anything, it doesn't flip or turn, it's just there to balance the card out so it measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Simple as that!!! I may try another one and use words at the top part and an image in the bottom. That's one of the fun things with this layout, either way you do it, it's fabulous!!!



Thank you for stopping by,
Wanda
