December Viva la Verve One Sheet Wonder Challenge

Welcome to our December Viva la Verve challenge!

Thanks so much for playing along and sharing all your fabulous cards in November!  I announced our November Viva la Diva last night, so scroll down or click here to view our winner announcement to see if you're our November Viva la Diva!

December is a super busy time for everyone, so I thought it would be fun to do a different kind of sketch challenge this month.  It's a 6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder with four card sketches perfect for making card sets for gift giving, or for quickly knocking out some Christmas cards.

There are four sketches this month, which are all posted below ... play along with us and link each of your challenge creations to our Entry Form link list. The link list will be up for the whole month and we'll choose a random winner at the end of the month to win a $100 gift voucher to Verve. Challenge rules can be found on the Rules tab at the top of the blog or by clicking here.  You don't have to complete all of the sketches to win, but the more cards you enter, the greater your odds of winning are. Verve stamps are not required to play, but we do love to see 'em!  I'll be highlighting a couple of my favorite link-ups each Friday this month, so be sure to link up.

You can do the sketches individually or use the template provided to make the four card set, it's up to you. The template is designed for a 6 x 6" sheet of double-sided paper.  In the sketches, I've also added circles (but you could substitute  a different shape) cut from neutral cardstock  amd hand cut banner ends on a couple of the pieces.

Tip:  Try to choose a paper where both sides have good contrast with each other and have a pattern that looks good when turned any direction.


Here's the link to the full printable PDF of the template.

To get you started, here is my sample card set using the OSW template.

 You can check out my O Christmas Tree Diva Inspirations Blog Hop post for the close-ups of each individual card.
