Card Week, Part 3


Card Sketch #11

"Thinking of You" card by Robbie Herring
Supplies Used - Patterned Paper and Chipboard: Pebbles Inc.; White Cardstock: Bazzill; Ribbon: Michaels Basic; Rub-on: American Crafts.

Variation 1: I used a wider strip of paper for the center piece and added scalloped punched borders to the edges.

Variation 2: I used a ribbon strip and bow instead of using the stripe.

Variation 3: I changed the squares to circles. I used a scalloped circle punch and a regular circle punch for the circles. The white circles are adhered with pop dots to add dimension.

Variation 4: I added two hearts instead of one to the 3rd circle. Instead of stitching around the circles (or squares), I added stitching to the large center piece.

Variation 5: I used a chipboard tag to add the sentiment.

"Birthday Fishes to You" digital card by Jill Sarginson
Supplies Used - Digital Kits: Kristin Aagard Fix Me Up Doc, Kristin Aagard Pond Play; Font: CK Ali Edwards

I kept the main elements the same here but decided to create a fun little scene surrounding those elements.

"First Day" card by Christy Arthur
Products - Bazzill: Kraft Cardstock; October Afternoon: Schoolhouse Shape Stickers, Workbook, Flashcards, Report Card Shape Stickers; Studio Calico: Elementary Library; Crate Paper: Emma's Shoppe Dresses

I used the sketch to make a "first day of school" card for my daughter.

Instead of the hearts that were used in the sketch, I chose various school related stickers and placed them on punched circles. I framed the outside circles with another punched circle "frame" to give it a little color.

I added a few sticker borders and the "first day" text to complete the card.
