Twisted Sketches Card #69

It's looks a little like Christmas in July around here!  For this week's Twisted Sketches Card Challenge, I made a Christmas card! (Clicking on the link will take you to this week's sketch!)  If you know me, you know I LOVE Tim Holtz and this week I went to Tim's products to create the card.

This week the twist is "square".  I used Tim's Stampers Anonymous stamp from the "Santa's Wish" set with Staz-on jet black ink.  Using a blending tools, I added Distress Inks (Aged Mahogany, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Pine Needles).  To make the image more of a square shape I tore the top and right side then inked with Vintage Photo and Black Soot.  I used Tim's Alteration's Checkerboard embossing folder on the card. Using Viva Las Vegas tape (I LOVE this stuff), I added the image to the card, then cut the sentiment from Tim's Seasonal Paper Stash, mounted it on a leftover piece of "smooshed" inked paper, added a piece of foam tape and adhered it to the card.  I added some Burgundy Stickles for the holly berries and voila - it's finished!

Hope you play along.  If you do, please leave a comment (either here or at Twisted Sketches) with a link to your  creation!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
