Christmas Craft Creations September Challenge

Morning All

Welcome back for another Christmas Craft Creations Challenge, this month we have a great sketch for you to use.

September is the time when I start to think about Christmas crafting and shopping, I like to be organised!! So out came the Christmas supplies...I have that much that I decided to store the Christmas craft stash separately from the rest! I have lots of lovely Christmas papers so I decided to use those for this sketch and to show them off to their best, I only used one stamp for the sentiment. 

I chose to interpret the sketch very literally and cut out three trees and backed them with purple cardstock. I did the same for the sloped ground and then mat the whole piece onto the same cardstock before attaching to the card front. I wanted to keep the strong lines as per the sketch. Finally I took the same cardstock and heat embossed a sentiment from the Uniko Simply Said Blocks Christmas stamp set.

I hope you are inspired to join us and I'd love to see how you interpret the sketch. It's always great to see how differently people approach a sketch challenge. And talking of which, head over to the Christmas Craft Creations blog to see how the rest of the Design Team got on with the sketch too.

Much love
