Christmas Shopping

Another week has passed and it's time for a new Willow Sketchie Challenge.  This week it's Kelly's turn and she would like you to make an easel card or a tent card and of course there is her sketch to follow.  This is my tent card

We all used the fab Walter and Winnie does Christmas CD again and I chose to use the Winnie Christmas Shopping Decoupage set and also some backing papers from the CD.

This is Kelly's sketch:

As you can see I rotated the sketch this week, it's ok to do that, you can also re-size it or flip it if you like and add any additional embellishments you choose.

I used core'dinations card stock and I have distressed the edges a little.  Then I cut the image out using a circle nestie and also cut a hole in the front of the card with the same nestie, I used my scalloped circle and circle nesties to cut a frame from core'dinations card stock and sanded it to show the embossing.  The sentiment circle is also cut using the scalloped circle nestie, sanded and then stamped with a sentiment from Creative Expressions.  The ribbon and ric rac is from my stash.

This view shows the tent effect a bit better and as you can see I used the same paper on the inside of my card.

Image and Papers: Walter and Winnie does Christmas CD -Winnie Christmas Shopping
Tools:  Spellbinders - Scalloped Circle and Standard Circle
Embellishments:  ric rac and ribbon from stash
Sentiment:  Creative Expressions
