Newton’s Nook – Holiday Wishes

Hello everyone! I’m back today with another entry into the current Inky Paws Challenge with Newton’s Nook. In case you missed my previous post, here is the sketch that we are challenged to mimic this time.

I think the sketch challenges are my favorite. Using whatever stamps suit me, trying to think of different ways to use them to fit the given format. It’s great!

Today I chose one of the Festive Fawns images – colored and die cut the image and set it aside to build my pieces like the sketch showed. I used one of the Framework dies for the red plaid panel and then trimmed down the other pieces with my paper trimmer. This time I used a corner rounder to make the edges a little softer which I thought fit well with the scalloped rectangle and the sweet fawn image I chose.

I glued the white patterned paper to a card base, then popped up the red rectangle. The banner is glued directly down and then the small white square and the fawn image are popped up with foam squares.

For finishing touches on this card I added glossy accents to the fawn’s nose, spots and hooves, black glaze pen to the eyes, white gel pen accents, Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the wreath bow and Crystal Nuvo Drops to the wreath berries. Very last I added a two cinnamon red hots jelly drop hearts from Trinity Stamps. I love the impact this gives the card.

After all that was dry I stamped my sentiment on the inside of the card. I chose “Holiday wishes to deer friends” from the Festive Fawns set. I love that it’s sweet and punny at the same time.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day.
