Sunday Sketch

If you look past my fourth-grade drawing skills, you'll see lots of layers for this week's sketch. This card is your opportunity to play with corners and borders, putting them all together to make an amazing focal point.

Start with one solid color and a pretty pattern for the background. Then find at least two more coordinating patters. They'll need to be a little less busy, as very little of them will show around the edges.

Pull out your corner rounders and other punches, as these will make each layer more interesting to look at.

Your sentiment and image will go smack-dab in the middle of your layers, and you can add any embellishments you like to tie it all together.

For my card, I chose Santa's milk and cookies as my theme. I started with a red card stock and peppermint candy-striped decorator paper. This gave me my color scheme for the whole card.

Then I picked out two more red patterns. For the first one, I used a circle punch to cut scallops in each corner. Then I matted my second pattern to fit right inside the scallops.

The top layer is white card stock with my images layered on it. The holiday treats phrase is raised on 3D adhesive for some added dimension. And it's all tied up with a pretty red ribbon.

This card, along with many other paper crafts and wood gifts, can be found in our Etsy shop. Come visit today for more great ideas and maybe a gift or two.
