For today’s Sunday Sketch I am sharing the Peaceful Deer Christmas Card. Sketches always help get my creative mojo going. What gets your mojo going?
Today’s Sunday Sketch is a very basic sketch. I followed the basic layout but didn’t use the measurements of the sketch. I wanted to try out my new Stitched With Whimsey Dies, aren’t they fun. A cut wavy stitching on the edges.
It is hard to tell from the picture, but I used the White Glimmer paper behind the trees. This paper is featured the July-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. The Real Red & White Glimmer paper contains 4 sheets of each color. It is a thin sheet that makes them so easy to die cut if you choose.
