Sunday Sketch

When we were little, tearing things up, knocking things down and destroying hours of hard work was considered fun.

With today's sketch, it can be again.

With a torn corner, your card can combine layers of colors and patterns, while showing off what lies beneath.

Choose two or three colors of card stock and a coordinating pattern. Layer them as your background with two patterns as the top and bottom layers. This will give you a surprise peeking out from behind your card.

Add a corner embellishment and a sentiment for an adorable, unique look.
For my card, I chose three colors of card stock that coordinated with my two patterned papers. I started with the green, then matted one of the patterns on top of it.

Then I worked from the top down, tearing the top patterned paper first. I matted that on the yellow and tore it, then matted both on the red and tore that. This gave me enough room for enough of the back pattern to show through.

My top pattern already had the corner embellishment on it, but you could use an additional pattern, die cuts or hand-stamped images.
