Freshly Made Sketches #97

Be Merry!  I have a Christmas card to share with you today, using my favourite stamp set from the new Close To My Heart Fall/Winter catalogue - the Framework Alphabet!  It's not usually the case that a font is my favourite new stamp set, but I love everything about this one, and it has such a current, fresh look to it.  I pulled out a holiday paper pack from a few years ago, and paper pieced Merry, then coloured 'be' in with Copic markers.  I've used the interesting sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week:
You can't see the glitter snowflake very well, but I layered a larger white cardstock snowflake over a smaller one that I'd cut out of silver glitter paper.  Just enough glitter to add a bit of sparkle.
 
Patterned papers are Believe; Cardstock is Black and White Daisy; Stamp set is Framework Alphabet; Glitter paper - all Close To My Heart; Let it Snowflake die, MFT; Martha Stewart snowflake punch.  Copic Markers

Love it! I've been trying to cut back on alphas since I feel like I have a ton, but I might have to pull the trigger on this one!
