Happy Holidays - Double Trouble Challenge #111 partnering with Crafter's Cafe

Here is my  Design Team card for Double Trouble Challenge #111 "Let's Brown Bag It" adding Twisted Sister's optional twist "dots and/or stripes" using the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch Challenge #555 and partnering with The Crafter's Cafe "Dots and/or Stripes".  The sketch was a good choice for the CTMH Spruced Up paperpack..  


Selected the striped design and a complementary paper for the background panels. Adhered them, using a heavier textured Kraft paper for the card base from CTMH Hope & Kindness paperpack. Die cut the zip strip for the scalloped edge in the sketch and adhered between the background papers.  Replaced the box and circle in the sketch with a bird on a branch with a pine cone behind.  Decided to make this a Holiday card stamping a sentiment "Happy Holidays" on a wood grain paper, bordered with the Kraft and adhered to upper left-hand corner of card.  CAS and handsome card.

Kraft and Christmas always go well together! Your card is so pretty and the striped paper coordinates perfectly :)

I really like that paper pack (and I don't have any left...) Great combo of Christmas colours and Kraft with the bird :)

Such rich warm colors in that paper set. Beautifully done, Suzanne! Thank you for joining us at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.

Suzanne, nice holiday card! Not quite traditional colors, so it will catch the eye of the lucky person who receives it. Great interpretation of the TSOT sketch, too! -Donna
