Merrily Blue

Hello everyone,

I knew I wanted to make a blue card today. I used today's Stars and Stamps sketch challenge as my jumping-off point.

The background paper is Stampin' Up Ski Slope designer series paper. The remaining paper is Stampin' Up Baja Breeze and Whisper White. The Baja Breeze layer is textured with Cuttlebug Winter Wonderland highlighted with Star Dust Stickles. The ribbon is from Offray. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Short & Sweet.

This card is exactly what I pictured. The sketch was just wonderful and really lent itself to the paper I wanted to use. The Stickles add just the right amount of glitter and go wonderfully with the ribbon. It's great when it turns out as I imagined.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.



  1. Very pretty paper combination. I like holiday cards in non-traditional colors. Nice work!

  2. I love the colors - I too like non-traditional Christmas colors - very nice !

  3. Gisèle, What a lovely execution of the sketch design! I do really like the colors and papers you choose. I agree, it is wonderful when one's vision comes to life! Blessings, Louise

  5. Very pretty card, Gisèle! I love that embossing - I'm going to have to look for that cuttlebug folder! Thanks for participating in the OWH Stars & Stamps Sunday Sketch challenge!
