The Perfect Sketch!


Happy Monday :) 

So the other night I made a total of 5 cards and was super impressed with myself! You saw the first card HERE which was for the Uniko Studio Challenge #2, I'd LOVE for you to join in BTW!

Today, you get to see cards 2 - 4, yep a little trio of Christmas cards, I think this is a first for me to make a Christmas cards this early! It was all down to the perfect sketch, the current CAS(E) this Sketch! sketch to be exact seen HERE and below...

As soon as I saw it, the Uniko Studio Label Love series jumped to mind and this little trio of cards were created...

I seem to be seeing a few Christmas themed cards around blog land and so that was the reasoning behind making a Christmas trio. I started out with Label Love: Christmas for this first card seen above and kept things super CAS & adding LOTS of Prisma Glitter (think this might have to be replenished before the BIG Christmas card stash is created!)

Following on for the next card I decided to use a Label Love: Thank you label with a Christmas sentiment inside...

I kept the colour scheme the same, as well as the overall layout using the sketch as my guide. 

For the last card I wandered from the sketch to create a gift look with my ribbons and used a label from Label Love: Birthday with another different Christmas sentiment. I love mixing & matching these sets, SO many possibilities :)

Again, I kept the colour theme the same, added more Prisma Glitter and a little rhinestone. I'm really pleased with my first little trio of Christmas cards for 2013! 

Apologies for the 'off' photos, we got a new camera the other day and I am still learning & getting to grips with it & the white balance, hopefully it won't take me too long to figure it out!

That's all I have to share for today, I'll be back again tomorrow with more to share, until then THANK YOU for stopping by :)
