Freshly Made Sketches #512

 Hello and Welcome.

Join me today for a card for the Freshly Made Sketches #512 challenge.

Here is the sketch:

Below is the card that I created for this challenge.

For this card I started with a card base of, Granny Apple Green cs.
Next I layered a piece of Basic White cs which I embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder.  I added a strip of designer paper at the top and a punched border underneath in a turquoise color.

Next I stamped 2 images of the tree and cut one out with a oval die. I colored the 2nd image with copic markers and cut out the tops of the trees.  I glued the two side trees down and mounted the center tree with foam tape adding some glitter to the star and the base of the trees. I mounted that onto another oval die cut using Real Red card stock.

The sentiment is from a Fiskars stamp set (Festive Trees) that I've had for a number of years but have never used. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo black ink.

Tree Stamp: Studio G
Oval Dies - Sizzix
Punch - EK Success


  1. Very nice. I like how you did the trees. For the section where you stamped your sentiment did you stamp over the dots or did you leave that section plain? It doesn't look like you did the embossing there.

  2. Here's another sketch I love and have saved. How cute and simple it is! These weekly challenges come and go too fast for me, though. Your little trees are so cute! I just love simple trees like this. I'd say perfect for the sketch, Ida!

  3. I love the polkadots, when I saw the prompt i thought what would I do with that to go by. no idea, but you sure did. beautiful

  4. I love all of the special touches on your card - great patterns, textures, images and fun die cuts!! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  5. Fun and festive, and a wonderful choice of colors

  6. What a sweet and fun Christmas card! I just love the cheerful colors and those cute trees. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  7. I love those trees...I should make something like this out of fabric.
