Freshly Made Sketches Christmas Card Set Using Scentsational Stamp Set

 When I saw this week's sketch challenge on Freshly Made Sketches, inspiration hit me.  I just knew what I wanted to make: this sweet card set using my Scentsational stamp set and framelits.

I started off with Whisper White bases (8 1/2 x 4 1/4).  Then I used a layer that matched the color of the image on the card: Real Red for the candy cane, Chocolate Chip for the gingerbread man, Gumball Green for the tree, and Midnight Muse for the coffee cup.
On the inside, I stamped sentiments in the same colors as the layer on the outside of the card.  I tried to pick sentiments that "matched" the image.

On each card, I added some sparkle!  Do you see it?  The pictures don't do it justice, but the gingerbread man and the candy cane have the clear sparkles, the tree has the red sparkles, and the coffee has crystal effects where the coffee would be and a big bling brad right in the middle of the cup.
I also used embossing folders to "match" each of the cards.

I may be offering this set of cards a class at some point.  It's so cute!  I love it!

Thanks for looking!
