The Craft's Meow October Sketch Card

I was fortunate enough to win one of The Craft's Meow's new stamp sets, The Merry Best, last week during their new release. The set came this week and I decided to ink it up and participate in their monthly sketch challenge. All the stamps on this card are from The Merry Best stamp set.

Instead of using a border on the left side of the card, I stamped one of the ornaments from the set, and then cut the edge to create the border. I decided I wanted to see the entire ornament, so I cut the front of the card away as well....that part was a little tricky, but I like the result.

The Ho Ho Ho is actually the last line of one of the sentiments: Merry Christmas! Ho Ho Ho. I stamped just the Ho Ho Ho portion on a thin piece of Kraft to create a ribbon effect.

The tag was cut using the Cricut Art Philosphy cartridge. I added the to/from, and then paper pieced the other two ornaments and adhered them to the tag, and then fastened it to the Ho Ho Ho piece with some hemp.

This was a fun sketch to play along with, wide open for interpretation, the way I like them. Hope you enjoy the card!

CTMH Supplies Used:
Paper: Kraft
Ink: Holiday Red, Topiary, Chocolate (for distressing)
Other: Cricut Art Philosphy cartridge, hemp
