JustRite Challenge 029-Sketch-Squares

Inside of the card
JustRite has a sketch challenge this week using squares.  I decided to make a square Christmas card using the Backyard Birds Set (a round set made into a square for this challenge) and Christmas Nested Sentiments and made it an inside/out card.  The paper is doubled sided from Cosmo Cricket "Christmas" and both sides were used to complete the card.  The image on the front was stamped with Momento ink and colored with Copic Markers, cut with Spellbinders and double mounted on the Cosmo Cricket paper then on gold cardstock.  I used Tea Dye distress ink to darken the image.   Stickles "Star Dust" was brushed on the tree branches, (hard to see in the picture)  while Glossy Accents was placed on the snow for a little dimension.  A Martha Stewart punch was used to create the lattice panel with the image placed with foam dots.  A Spellbinder label was used to cut the backside of the main paper and stamped with the Christmas nested sentiments and a gold ribbon finished off the label.  Th Christmas Nested Sentiments, the Cosmo Cricket paper  and the Martha Steward punch were used on the inside of the card.  I had fun making this card and hope you enjoy.
