Ho, Ho, Ho

There are a couple sketches out there which look pretty similar to me, so I think this card will work for all of them.

 

The "Ho, Ho, Ho" and banner are both cut from CTMH's Artiste cartridge.  The black glitter paper and sentiment are also CTMH, though the stamp set is retired.  The red paper has a great texture to it which isn't showing well in the big picture but is better in this detail shot of the banner.  I scored the banner twice on each end and filled the middle with foam tape to lift it.  I thought about doing the red panel with foam tape, but there were too many small bits to the inside of the Ho, Ho, Ho for it to work well.  Either that or I was too lazy to fuss that much.

Here are the sketch challenges I'm entering:

CAS(E) This Sketch #36
Atlantic Hearts #12
Fusion #13

I'm also entering it into the Merry Monday: Christmas in July Challenge.

Now it's off to see what's going on over at Summer Card Camp 2.

Until next time,
Becca
