Can you Case It? with Freshly Made Sketches

Hello stampers,

It is so close to Christmas, I can hardly stand it!  I almost have all of the Christmas shopping done, the wrapping will soon begin and our Elf on the Shelf has been in almost every spot he possibly can!

So, of course, I have a Christmas card to show you today. I used 2 challenges to help me create this beautiful card, Can you Case it? and Freshly Made Sketches! They both have very similar sketches and that made this card REALLY easy to create.  I took along with me to my most recent TV appearance with Roger's Daytime.  We had a ton of fun, but I will tell you more about that later in the week.

First, here are the sketches...



 And, here is my card......

A very traditional card....don't you think?  When I saw these sketches I knew I wanted to use one of my newest tools - the Festive Flower Builder Punch.  This flower is surprisingly easy to create.  I first punched all the petals, as well as a 3/4 circle that you can't see in the picture, all out of Real Red cardstock.  Then, I stamped the flower pieces with the coordinating stamspet, Reason for the Season, also in Real Red.  The flower center is punched out of a scrap piece of yellow cardstock.  The circle is used as a base for the flower to be assembled upon.  I used my Tombo glue to put it all together.

My greeting is from Versatile Christmas and the DSP is from the Season of Cheer package.

Thanks for joining me today.  Be sure to stop by Can you Case it? and Freshly Made Sketches to see all of the wonderful inspiration there.

Happy Stampin'
