Card Week, Part 4

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Several times we've shown a sketch and a few projects that have flipped it. I admit I was surprised when I saw the two cards below, both flipped versions of the sketch. Before I didn't really see this one as flippable but know I see the possibilities, thanks to Katrina and Melissa. I think you'll love how different these look from the sketch yet it's obvious that that's were the inspiration came from.

Card Sketch #4


You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the card sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar.

"Hello" card by Melissa Elsner
Supplies - Cardstock: Recollections and Bazzill Basics Paper; Patterned Paper, Alphabet Stickers, and Hot Air Balloon: Webster's Pages; Pearls: Kaisercraft

Variation #1: I flipped the sketch but stayed true to all the measurements.

Variation #2: I decided to add some dimension by mounting the sentiment block on some pop dots. Then I added the hot air balloon next to my 'hello'.


Variation #3: I used a corner punch to on the base of the card to flow with the rounded corners of the sentiment block.
