It's OK but I wasn't as pleased with it as I might have been so I set about another sketchie, this time an easel card - as they look so special when sat on the mantel at Christmas . . . . below left.
For this I used a square card which had been part of my prize when an article of mine was published in Card Making and Papercraft recently. I folded it not quite in half to form the easel and then cut a panel of the embossed white Christmas paper (as above) to the size of my easel card. I cut three strips of white card using my stamp blade and new woodware cutter which I then embossed with two parallel lines (as per the sketch). I then adhered two to the easel card embossed panel and one to the base. To the panel on the base I then attached two iridescent white snowflakes to form the "latch" for the easel to stand up against. I then die cut three scalloped rectangles, two large and one slightly smaller. I left one large and one small rectangle plain and put the other through my die cutter inside my papermania snowflake embossing folder. I tied some narrow white ribbon in to a knot around the plain large rectangle. I stamped my image and sentiment and cut them out. I coloured all but the snowman's body using Atyou Spica glitter pens, but coloured the body using liquitex pearl and adding holographic loose ultrafine glitter. Using silicon glue (for a 3D effect) I attached the image and sentiment to the smaller panel which was then adhered to the embossed large panel and then to the large plain panel with the ribbon. Once this was done I then stamped my snowman and sentiment once more on to the accompanying envelope and there you have it - my second sketchie - hope you like them both.
