Guest Designer at Crafty Boots

Today I am honoured to be Guest Designer at Crafty Boots.  This is because I won their sketch challenge - here is the sketch:

and here is my winning card: 

I think you can see what I've done here! The current challenge at Crafty Boots  is Christmas in July , so I made a Christmas version of my winning card. I hope that's not too boring! 

On my Silhouette Cameo, I turned some pictures of tree baubles into sketches and, using a pen instead of a blade, sketched them , and the 'stitching' onto card. I coloured them with markers and then stamped random Christmas words and numbers. I added a die cut sentiment and some gems. 

I hope you like it and I hope you will join in with the challenge at Crafty Boots.  Thanks for having me as Guest Designer!

  4. Congrats on your GDT spot and I love how you've cased yourself! I find this sketch quite challenging, but for you it seems to be easy. The baubles look great with the sketched lines around the them, I really like this style.

  5. Hi Marina! I can see why you won with your original card, and I just adore how you made a Christmas card with the same layout and concept! I love it! Thanks so much for joining my Christmas in July challenge this week.
