Christmas Sentiment Cards

Good morning! I'm here with a card that I made for Mercy's Tuesdays Sketch Challenge #47. I wanted to keep my card fairly simple and to have the focus on this great sentiment from Verve's Christmas in the Air. It reminds me of when I was little and my dad used to play his classic records or listen to the stereo each Christmas. When I close my eyes I can remember hearing Andy Williams belting out this classic tune.

I loved how Tosha made a gorgeous set of cards using several of the wonderful sentiments from the latest Verve release here. This sketch is perfect to showcase some pretty patterned paper and have the sentiment be front and center. I know that I will be using it again and again!

After I finished my first card, I belatedly realized that I had planned on using Mercy's sketch and making an easel card for Crazy 4 Challenges #10. So, since I still had my supplies out, I made another card. The size is slightly different, but I used the same supplies. Only the sentiments are different {from Verve's O Christmas Tree}.

I hope you have a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!
