Although I made this as a gift weeks ago this is my first chance to post it. I had made other holiday tissue box covers years ago but this time I put the paper sizes and score lines in Design Space so all I had to do was assemble it. Easy Peasy!

Sketch challenges are my favorites! Today I'm playing along with the Paper Players #514 sketch with another Christmas card.
This lovely wreath is from Close to My Heart's November/December catalog. It comes with a matching die that has cuts to lift up the leaves to reveal color underneath. The stamp set is called Serenity Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cut Set and will be available on Sunday here. I think it works perfectly with this week's Case This Sketch #395.
Here is the fabulous sketch that inspired my card layout:

I love making cards with small pieces (scraps) and chose Freshly Made Sketch #458 to make this card:
Here's another view so you can see how sparkly the foiled paper is:

When I saw this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesday's sketch I started looking through my stash for striped patterned paper. I came upon this older Stampin' Up 6 x 6 paper stack with diecuts and foil paper. I combined it with a soon to be released Close to My Heart greeting from a stamp set called Serenity Cardmaking Stamp Set and Raspberry Card Stock and Stitched Hearts Thin Cuts.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Feathers are a fun element in card making and I just received a new "Feather Pleasure" set from Local King Rubber Stamps. I colored the stamp with Nuvo Glitter Markers and then pressed it onto light blue card stock. The set came with matching dies so I traced the outline of the die onto the turquoise card stock and cut it out.
The patterned paper is from a 6"x 6" Bright Stack. The Sapphire Card Stock was cut with Fancy Borders Thin Cut Dies. An old punch was used on Silver Glitter paper to extend behind the focal feather. The feather was popped up with 3D Foam Dots.
Here is the fabulous card that I "Cas'd" from Sharon at Less is More:

It's mid-October and time to think about Christmas card designs so I made my first 2020 card using Freshly Made Sketch #457. The card stock colors are CTMH Evergreen and Candy Apple Red. The greeting is from last year's stamp set called "Reindeer Crossing" in Cranberry Pigment Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. The Gold Metallic patterned paper is from an old paper stack by DCWV called "Cup of Cheer."

My sister's birthday is today so I made her a card with rich fall colors. Most of the supplies used are retired Close to My Heart products (Small Leaves paper, Vineyard Berry Card Stock, Honey Card Stock, Autumn Terracotta Ink and Salutation Seals stamp). The heart border diecuts on Almond Card Stock are from Fancy Borders Thin Cut Dies and the Scalloped Circle Thin Cut Dies are still available.
Here is the wonderful TGIF Sketch #285 that inspired my card layout:

Welcome back to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog post! This week's sketch has a triangular element with a rectangle focal image to spark your creativity. I rotated the sketch 90 degrees so I could use the Creativity in Motion panel on a 6.5" x 5" card.
Here is another picture so you can see the alternate script in the panel:
The accent flower was fussy cut from the Lovely Paper. Then I pressed it onto a Versamark Ink Pad and used Clear Embossing Powder to give it a glossy look and popped it up with 3D Foam Tape. I've had a great time playing with this new "Animation" bundle from Close to My Heart. (Products available through October or until supplies last.)
