Publication reject cards
The second card might seem a tad familiar, since I've done this sketch a few times before. I just really, REALLY, love this sketch. I started with some So Saffron cardstock (SU) and cut it so the card measured 5.5 x 4 inches ( I trimmed a .25 inch off so that I could get three cards done with one strip of patterned paper). I used some Susan Wignet Christmas paper (Holly) and cut a 1.5 inch strip off the 12x 12 paper, cutting it at 4 inches, and adhered to the card base. Next, I took the stamp "Blessed is the Season" (Quietfire Design) and stamped it on the bottom of the card in Forest Moss Distress Ink. On some scrap white cardstock, I stamped the Ornament stamp (Hero Arts) in Aged Mahogany Distress Ink. I used a 2 inch circle punch from Marvy to punch out the ornament. I finished the card by foam mounting the ornament to the cardstock.
