 Card Sketch #13

"Hello" card by Christy Arthur
Products - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Studio Calico (Memoir Flower Bed, Autumn Press Bundle, Scarf and Frolic), Crate Paper (Farmhouse Sunday Dinner); Stickers: Crate Paper (Farmhouse Border Stickers and Random Phrase Stickers); Stamps: Hero Arts (Typewriter); Ink: Jenni Bowlin (Weather Vane), Ranger (Adirondack Pitch Black)

Variation #1: I added another strip of paper to the edge of the card and embellished it with a border sticker.

Variation #2: I added two extra banners, varying the width and length of each banner.

Variation #3: I placed the message on the corner embellishment, instead of towards the left side of the card. I also used two larger embellishments instead of three smaller flowers.

Variation #4: I did not add any stitching.

"Congratulations" card by Jill Sarginson
Supplies Used - Patterned Paper: Crate paper; Ink: Vibrance; Stickers: Crate paper; Cardstock: Bazzill


• I matted the entire sketch onto a piece of cardstock.

• I reduced the size of the layer on top of the horizontal flag strips.

• My cluster in the bottom right is a bit bigger than the sketch as my elements were bigger - to balance it out, I added a circle tag and circle chipboard above the sentiment.

Variation #1: I used a die cut instead of the white block.
