Sunday Sketch

With just a few more days until the 4th of July, today’s sketch explodes with sparkles and creativity. (See what I did there? Explodes...yeah, you got it.)

The background of the sketch ties directly to the theme - fireworks and Independence Day. It’s hand-stamped and decorated, and I’ll show you tomorrow how I did it.

The phrase is stamped and run as a banner across the bottom of the card. It’s accented with more fireworks because, let’s be honest, you can never have too many fireworks. Unless it’s midnight and the neighbors keep firing them off.

Ready to make this sketch your own? Start with a white card stock card base. Then cut your decorator paper 1/4 inch smaller so you have a border around all four edges. You can also use a color instead of white if it coordinates better with your decorator paper.

Once you’ve stamped or printed or cut out your sentiment, mat it on a coordinating piece of card stock, leaving a border on the top and bottom. Then attach it close to the bottom of the card, centering it and trimming anything hanging over.

The empty spaces on either side of the sentiment are just waiting for your creativity. You can add all sorts of different embellishments that coordinate with your background paper and theme. If you want to use eyelets or brads, just attach them before you tack the border to the card.
