This month's full set features a basket for each season with a bonus Christmas basket. There are 3 lovely sentiments also included. I decided to make a Christmas card, so I chose the sweet Christmas basket. I wanted an idea for a fun design, so I looked at various challenge sketches for this week and settled on Tuesday Morning Sketches' #313 challenge. This sketch was a little out of my comfort zone since I don't usually use triangles on my cards. That may change now!
I decided to try out the Smooch Spritz sprays I recently bought at a craft outlet, so I sprayed gold and red on a 5x7 inch blank white card and let it dry. Meanwhile, I was working on cutting out my red glitter paper into a triangle that matched the sketch. I also chose a Spellbinders die from the Elegant Ovals set to cut out the digital stamp I had sized and printed using my Silhouette Design Studio software. I chose a couple other Spellbinders dies for the flourish on the right side and the accent on the lower right hand side. I added a few little gems and a small Christmas tree embellishment to complete the front of the card.
