Here's a little twist on an oldie but a goodie. I thought we could try a card sketch for Christmas Card Sunday.
My Christmas card sketch began by deciding what designer paper I wanted to use. I ended up using a retired collection, Peaceful Place.
The beautiful thing about a card template is it's just a jumping off point, you don't have to copy it exactly. As you can see from the sketch below, I changed a number of things. Instead of using the combination of four small squares I decided to use a circle. And I changed the straight strip of cardstock underneath to a grouping of trees, which I punched out using the Evergreen Border Punch. Even the greeting is different, using a rectangle instead of an oval.
The card greeting stamp came from the Evergreen Elegance set. It's retired now, but you can find a gently used set on my Retired Rubber Stamps page. Here's another spectacular yet simple holiday card idea using this set.
A card sketch is always a great way to get your creative juices flowing, but remember to work with what you have and let your own artistic vision shine through.
