Warm Wishes

This week's sketch over at Sketch Support is for a card, and here's the card I made, which is posted today:

I have to admit, I don't make a lot of cards, but I had so much fun with this sketch. The snowman idea just popped into my brain the second I saw the sketch, and I thought I'd use felt too, since I had the phrase "Warm Wishes."

I had an initial idea of mixing felt circles with patterned paper, as I had some nice yellow, blue, and gray winter paper, but when I used them, the snowman looked either diry (blue or gray snow) or worse (yellow snow). So I stuck with the felt, though I wish I'd glued the felt to white paper circles first before adhering it to the card--it would've made the glue a little less visible. Still, the recipient of this card is not going to gasp and say, "Oh no! Glue!" Hopefully they'll smile and say, "Aww!"

And speaking of snowmen, you'll see another one for the project I did for the sketch next week!

I love this interpretation of Allison's sketch. It is so creative and so adorable. I would love it, glue and all, so you should be fine if you can part with it.
