Freshly Made Sketches #58

Time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I created my card with help from the Pear & Partridge Rub-Ons Collection.  My mittens are actually rub-ons and I added some red trim to make them stand out.  I created the coordinating side panel by dry embossing Colonial White cardstock and then coloring the dots to match the pattern on the mittens. My sentiments are from the October Stamp of the Month, Very Merry Christmas.  I just love the font style on this set!  This set is only available in October and can be yours for as little as $5 with a qualifying purchase!  Here is a look at the original sketch design by Narelle-
I layered my sentiment on the inside to finish out my card.  You can easily change out the sayings in this stamp set with just a little masking of the sentiments.

In case you have yet to see it, here is a look at the full set of the October Stamp of the Month...only a few days left to add it to your collection! All of the shapes coordinate with the Cricut Artiste Collection.

And a look at the complete set of rub-ons.  I know many of us never give a second look to the rub-on embellishment sets.  These are so easy to apply and you can have great looking projects in no time at all!
