Itty Bitties Christmas Card



I don't know if this qualifies for a "clean" card to fit the Freshly Made Sketch FMS348, but I gave it a go anyway. I always tend to keep adding layers but this  one is free of embellishments, so I'll share it in spite of the layers.

I started with 4 squares of white cardstock that were cut with stitched square dies. Next I stamped 4 different images from an older Sweet'n Sassy Itty Bitties Christmas stamp set and colored them with Copics and a silver art pencil. I cut a large square of Cherry Cobbler and placed them evenly on that and added a SNSS sentiment done on a Fishtail Flag Banner die from MFT. I placed it on a kraft card base that was die-cut with matching stitched edges and called it done.


Thanks for checking in as I'm on a roll with Christmas cards the past few days. More to come soon :)

Have yourself a fabulous day!

Kraft and red is just a lovely combo for a christmas card and I really like those small stamps! It is funny how different people have very different standards for CAS, I’m glad you shared it for the sketch because I think it is great!

I love the little lined edges on your squares! The images remind me of a Christmas quilt pattern especially with the stitched dies. I think it's a great take on the sketch and good for you on getting more Christmas in! :) HUGS

You really are on a roll with Christmas cards! I seemed to be for a while and then it ended. Need to get back on that.
I do love this one though and the images are so perfect for that sketch! VERY pretty card for the holidays.

For me is a CAS, but as you know I'm not the most suited person to say it LOL :D
Beautiful design with these stamped squares, and love the black doodling around the images. I have to make some Christmas cards too, because this winter I will be too much busy for crafting :(
Hugs, have a lovely day!
