Sunday Sketch

I've made it my goal this week to use up a sizable amount of the paper that I have before I buy any more. It's a difficult challenge because of how much I love paper, but I've been able to pull some out that I forgot I had. It's kind of like Christmas in February, and it's been stirring up some creative juices - which I also forgot I had.

For this sketch, you'll need three scraps of card stock, two scraps of decorator paper and a phrase or image. That's it, so start digging!

Mat your largest scrap with a dark solid color to use as your background. Then use a smaller matted piece on the side for a secondary focal point. Your image or phrase will be smaller in the bottom and matted on another solid color.

For my card, I chose a light background pattern on a very dark solid color. Then I matted my dandelion patterned paper on a light color. For a little fun, I put three sparkling gem stones in the upper righthand corner.

Then I matted my vellum phrase and added it, overlapping the dandelions.

You can find this large magnet, along with many other cards, paper crafts and wood gifts, in our Etsy shop. Come visit us soon!
