Sunday Sketch

I’ve been in love with this textured flower patterned paper for weeks, and I finally found a way to put it to good use - as the background for a beautiful sympathy card.

Today’s simple sketch packs a big punch with a bright patterned paper, a simple embellishment and a powerful Bible verse. Combined, these elements create an eye-catching card that will help in someone’s time of need.

For this card, I started with a strip of green patterned paper on the right side so it would be seen behind my fussy-cut flowers and leaves. The printed verse is embellished with tiny acrylic dots and a 3D sticker word.

Ready to make this sketch your own? Start by choosing a great, bold pattern for the background. Then cut or tear the edge so you can put a light, simple pattern behind it.

Next you’ll need a small phrase and a small embellishment to stack along the bottom of the card. Their size will let you see as much of the pattern behind them as possible while still making the verse stand out. Mat them on coordinating card stock and add some tiny embellishments as needed.
