Sketchy Holiday Cards

Hey everyone!  Are you ready for the holidays?  I am certainly not this year.  I'm still making holiday cards.  So I thought I'd share my latest Splitcoast Sketch Challenge creation using a sketch design little ol' me...

Here's my creation this morning...
I first stamped my little topiary using some Versamark ink onto a piece of vellum, added some detail white embossing powder and heat set it.  Once it was cool, I coloured the back of my image using Copic markers.  I then adhered my vellum by hiding the adhesive behind the coloured parts of my image onto Flourishes Classic White Cardstock.

Then I created the rest of my card using papers from the Echo Park "Keepin' Cozy" line ... I just love the navy blues, greens, red and turquoise colour scheme of these papers!

A super simple holiday card to warm someone's day!  Now... just to sit down an address all my cards... sigh!  There is never enough time in the day is there?  LOL!

I LOVE this card.
Love how you did the topiary and your design is wonderful.
I haven't used vellum in a long time.
{Honestly it was lost in my craft room. lol}
I'm going to break it out this weekend and play.
Thanks for sharing.
