Hello to my fellow creators! I have decided to follow along with Alicia of Call me Crafty Al each month and do a video/blog post using her monthly Sheetload of Cards sketches. I used this month’s sketch to make more Christmas cards for my annual donation. I pulled in some paper from a Michael’s hot buy paper pad (Name here) I had in my stash. I used some embossed brown card stock (Recollections) for the mat and some cream heavy card stock for the bases. Once I had my papers selected, I went ahead and cut and sorted all the paper. I used some cut-aparts from the paper pad as my sentiment/images on the cards. I didn’t follow the sketch exactly. I went ahead and added a mat layer using the same paper I used for the strip (I did not use a scalloped edge). I also omitted the embellishment next to the sentiment/image. As you can tell, I used a square sentiment/image instead of the circle. I took a lot of liberties with this month’s sketch, but I like how the cards turned out. This took me a little over an hour to complete, which is perfect for getting a lot of cards done quickly.
