Joy to the World

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #397 opened on Monday, November 30, and will end on Sunday evening, December 6, 2020. Here is the sketch for this week:

I had a sheet of patterned paper that I wanted to use. The little moose and polar bear are so cute! If I had made a larger card, perhaps I could have also captured a rabbit, reindeer, Yeti, and snowman that are scattered throughout the pattern. Onto a panel of white cardstock, I added a panel of green and then a panel of the patterned paper cut into three equal parts. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with silver. It was die-cut with an oval die and matted with a die-cut silver oval. I added the narrow silver ribbon and then with foam tape, the oval was added. I also added a few gems. The inside was decorated with a few scraps of coordinating paper. Because almost every card that I give has to be mailed, I try to keep them low profile for easy mailing.
