Christmas Postcard

This week I'm playing along again with the brand new sketch blog, Freshly Made Sketches. Check them out if you haven't already, they have some really great sketches! Their design team also provides some great inspiration!

When I saw this sketch I knew I wanted to grab my Christmas Postcard stamp and make a card with it. I love this stamp but just don't pull it out that often, bad me!

To give the images a little extra pop I used gold stickles for the bells and Xmas Red stickles for the berries. I knew I had done a pretty good job with the card when my 12 yr old son told me he really loved it and that it looked old fashioned to him! He is now my favorite child!! ROFL

Supplies used(all supplies are SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Christmas Postcard, Bells and Boughs
Paper: Always Artichoke, More Mustard, Riding Hood Red, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Black StazOn, Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso, More Mustard
Accessories: Xmas Red Stickles, Gold Stickles, Always Artichoke Brads, Always Artichoke Ribbon, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Aquapainter, Color Sprizter Tool, sponge, dimensionals



  1. Beautiful holiday card! I love how you used More Mustard!

  6. More Mustard on a Christmas card is fantastic! Beautiful coloring job and you've really rocked the sketch! Love that pop of mustard! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  7. This is fantastic - I love it and it definitely feels and looks old-timey. Not that I would know for sure but I think it would fit in perfectly on the set of White Christmas, Holiday Inn, etc. Beautifully done!
