Saturday Sketch Challenge

Hello Friends!

Boy am I ONE HAPPY STAMPER today! I'm headed to the mountains for our last camping trip of the season!

I actually CASED (copy and steal everything) tonight's sketch from a card I saw on operator, Robin Merriman's blog. She had the cutest Christmas tree card that I thought was oh so clean and simple.

The jolliest time of year is one of my all time favorite stamp sets. I'll be doing one of my annual 30 card Christmas card classes the week after next and this is one of the cards! Too fun!

How about some measurements?

Base 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: 4 x 5 1/4"
I used a ribbon in between ~ you could cut a piece 1 1/4" x 4 for this layer.
Layer 3: 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" (note, you cut this from an 8 1/2" x 11 and yeild 6 per sheet. cut down the center first at 4 1/4")
Layer 4: 3 x 4" (note: this one is smarter to cut from a 12 x 12... cut first at 4" then at 3", yields 12 pieces from ONE sheet of 12 x 12" card stock. ) Much more economical! Easy peasy!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!
