Sunday Sketch

My goal for the next few weeks is to use up every single scrap of paper I have in my craft room before I buy any more. This seems like a lofty goal, I know, but cards made from sketches like today’s will help tremendously.

For my card, I ink-distressed the edges of two colors of card stock and three pieces of decorator paper. I also distressed two die cuts - the flowered ribbon and the Thinking of You sentiment.

I matted the fabric-looking white paper on the textured card stock and ran the spotted paper down one side. Then I cut the flower die cut and matted it on coordinating card stock. The flower-patterned paper is the same size as the sentiment block, which is accented with acrylic dots, as are the corners of the card.

Ready to make this sketch your own? Start by choosing coordinating card stock and decorator paper. You’ll also want a nice, square sentiment and some small embellishments.

From there, you can create your own background, focusing on the strip running down the left hand side of the card. Then cut your die cut or patterned paper into a great focal point paper ribbon.

On top of that, layer the sentiment and patterned paper square on top of the paper ribbon. Accent everywhere possible with the small embellishments, all pointing to that one-of-a-kind center design.
