Nenette created three CARDS with three sketches (2 of which are layout sketches)!
Nenette's Tip: Pay attention to the negative space a sketch may give you. In sketch 104, I made use of the negative space of the squares and created a window with the Christmas tree and gifts peeking through.

Nenette's Tip: Use other colors aside from greens and reds on Christmas cards. White on white makes the sentiment and embellishments stand out more. This is a clean and simple card that can be easily reproduced. Just add some embossing to emphasize the layering.
