Sunday Sketch

Summer calls for some bright colors and gorgeous patterns! Today’s sketch will let you combine the two and make a stand-out card!

For my thank you card, I started with two colors of textured card stock and two coordinating patterns. The flowered patterned paper is from the same set, one in black and white and one in pink. This is a fun little trick you can use when you don’t feel like deciding if patterns go well together.

To make the trio of tags on the right, I cut down a die cut sentiment, then made a pink and a black square to match. An eyelet through the corner is tied up with pink floss. I adore the way this card turned out!

Ready to make this sketch your own? Start with two colors of card stock and two coordinating patterns. The two patterns will be used to make three building blocks on the left side of the card. Matting the middle one on coordinating card stock will help it stand out from the other pattern.

For the three right hand blocks, center your sentiment on a square of card stock. Then cut two more squares the same size and fan them out. A strategically placed eyelet will keep them in place, plus give you somewhere to attach your fibers.

Three on one side and three on the other - how will you make this card something special?
