CAS(E) This Sketch! Challenge #7


Hi there and welcome to the latest CAS(E) This Sketch! challenge!  This week's sketch was designed by challenge creator Jackie Rockwell:


Initially I was a bit stumped by the stripes at the bottom but once I decided I was going to use a candy cane on the card then I had the idea to make red and white stripes.  I layered together 3 Papertrey Ink Half and Half tags to make my stripes and then popped up and Glossy Accented the candy cane image.  What do you see when you look at this sketch?  Be sure to check out the gorgeous inspiration by the design team over on the CAS(E) This Sketch! page and then get creating!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Riding Hood Red, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Candy cane from Sweet Home) Neat & Tangled, (Sentiment from Tags - Christmas) Elzybells
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Clear) Ranger
Die:  (Half & Half die) PTI
Punch:  (Threading Water) Fiskars
Gems:  (Lily White assortment) Doodlebug

Love your take on the sketch, Jen! The glossed up candy cane looks delicious. Lucky for me, I can go to the pantry and get one! LOL

I thought of the half & half die as soon as I saw the sketch. Hope you don't mind if I still use it. Great card.

I see awesome when I look at your card :) LOVE the label edges as stripes - and yep, candy canes. I can't wait for the first one of the season....although that one candy cane usually is enough ;)
