Ok, don’t say I didn’t tell you that this sketch was cool! This layout from Freshly Made Sketches is care of Lesley Croghan of Always Playing with Paper. While I admit that this one intimidated me a bit at first, I think you will be surprised at how easy it is to use! When you see the inspiration pieces from the design team you will see what I mean. They are all going into my CASE files!
This card is pretty much all about punches and dies for the Big Shot. I started with my 1 3/4″ and 1 1/4″ Circle Punches and the Everyday Enchantment DSP from Sale-a-bration. The great thing about designer paper packs is that they coordinate. Certainly makes it easy to create a card like this. All I had to do was decide which patterns to put together and I was most of the way there. I added some butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the little flowers from the Fun Flowers die, along with some Basic Pearl accents. I sponged along all the edges with a some Soft Suede ink. Finally, a little banner with my sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and done!
This is one that would be easy to duplicate and create a whole pack of cards for myself or a gift. Hmmm…might have to do that!
Now get right to work and try this sketch. Don’t let it intimidate you…you’ll be happy you tried it! Don’t forget to take a peek at the fab cards from the rest of the team. Amazing!
Glad you stopped in today. I’m getting ready for my stamping club meeting tomorrow. If I have any extra stamping time, maybe I’ll have something else to share later this week. Have a great day!
