Sketch Challenge 123

Hello Everybody!

I'm excited about today's sketch challenge from stampin411. Mainly because the sketch is so simple! I just love simple sketches!

I saw this cute color combination when we were out to have breakfast at the cracker barrel last weekend. They were showing a snowmen display and Christmas tree with whisper white, real red and bashful blue! (at least that's what I saw!)

I used the ornament stamp set from the mini, and used the three little stamps that are not ornaments. They seem to get neglected in my stamp box! I did use one of the ornament stamps. (the one with the snow flake in the middle) and punched that one out. I layered it with a dimensional to pop it up a bit.

So here's my measurements:
Base: 11 x 4 1/4"
Second layer: 4 x 5 1/4"
Third layer: 4 1/4 x 3 1/4" * note you can get 6 from one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11, by cutting the 8 1/2" side in half at 4 1/4" first, then flip your cardstock and cut the 3 1/4" sides next.
Fourth layer: 3x4" **Note, you can get 12 pieces of 3x4" cardstock from one 12 x 12 sheet.
Fifth Layer: 4 x 1 1/2"

I used a wheel and white craft ink to apply a similar pattern to the left hand side of the red. I used the scallop edge punch to make the scallop edge going across and used snail adhesive to stick my ribbon to the back of the card. I tied a second piece of ribbon on the front for a faux knot. Quick and easy, I made a bunch of these for a swap last Sunday in under an hour. :)

Happy Weekend and Happy Halloween!
