For the Sara Jane's Studio Holiday Card Swap, I decided to use a very simple design - which is generally unlike me! But it was a challenge to myself. And I decided to take one particular card sketch, and to make each card based on the same sketch but with a different approach.
Here is the sketch:
My cards were 5-1/4" square, and fit in the Stampin' Up! medium square envelopes. But of course you could make it any size, and even use the standard A2 card shape. The most fun, besides it being so simple, was to see how easy it was to make cards that had very different looks.
Here is the first one. Check back for more!
This uses the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' kit - so many more things you can do with this kit than just scrapbooking!! The scallop was made with the Scallop Edge punch. Otherwise, everything else can be made with your regular tools. The cardstock is Real Red, and the sentiment was mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals to give more, um, dimension to the card. And I added little dots of red glitter scattered across the front of the card, and on the holly berries on the sentiment.
More versions to come!!
