Sunday Sketch

I love looking through my paper scraps to find combinations of patterns and colors that I wouldn’t normally combine. That makes every project even more fun, like the card I made for today’s sketch. None of the papers I used were full sheets, so there’s your challenge for the week!

For my card, I found two patterns and two solid colors that went really well together. I covered my white card stock card with dark green textured card stock, and the green swirls paper is matted on top. For the side banner, I cut a strip of the second patterned paper and matted it on orange card stock.

The tree die cut is also matted on card stock, and the sticker phrase is double matted and raised on 3D adhesive. Orange acrylic dots embellish each of the corners.

Ready to make this sketch your own? Start by going through your paper scraps to find two colors of card stock and two patterns that all coordinate. Mat the background and the left hand banner.

Choose a large image and a small sentiment to stack across the middle of the card. Raising the sentiment on 3D adhesive will help it stand out. A small embellishment in each of the four corners will tie the layout all together.
