SSINKspiration Card Sketch SSINKCS40: Jolly Friends

Good morning!  Another weekend full of holiday fun and I really enjoyed all the time spent with friends.  The guys were away at Winter Survival Camping and while being very cold all weekend they're home safe and sound now.  With the start of another week it's time for another challenge on the SSINKspiration blog, this time it's a sketch challenge.  This month's sketch is a really fun design which was fun to play with.

I used Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Basic Black cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and Brickwall Embossing Folder.  Next I added two pieces of designer series paper from the Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack.

For the main stamped image I used the Jolly Friends stamp set and stamped the elf head using Basic Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and then punched it out with a circle punch.  I stamped the elf hat on Old Olive cardstock using Old Olive ink and then punched it out using the coordinating Jolly Hat Builder Punch (also on sale).  I attached the had with dimensionals and then added a Mini Jingle Bell to the hat and tied it with a bow using Basic Black Baker's Twine.

The final touch was to add a greeting so I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and stamped using Basic Black ink on Old Olive cardstock and then used Paper Snips to trim the ends before attaching to the cardfront with dimensionals.

The images in this stamp set are so cute, and right now the stamp set is on sale as part of the year end sale so if you don't have this set, now is the perfect time!  The other designers are sharing some other cards using the same sketch for inspiration so go check them out and then play along and share what you create.
