Card Sketch #17
“Natural Beauty” by Carolyn Wolff
Supply List - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle (Paradise); Chipboard and Die-Cuts: Little Yellow Bicycle (Paradise); Ink: Ranger Distress Ink; Floss: DMC; Buttons: unknown; Brads: Creative Impressions; Marker: American Crafts
Variation #1 – I created a two-page layout using this card sketch. The sketch element is the panel in the middle of the right page.
Variation #2 – I did not create the different panels shown on the sketch. I cut a piece of brown cardstock that measured 4 ¼ x 10 ¾ inches. I cut 2-inch squares out of different patterned papers and adhered them to the brown strip. I hand-stitched each square with brown embroidery floss. I added printed and chipboard embellishments to the bottom of the panel to replace the message spot on the sketch.
Variation #3 – I used Two-page Sketch #20 and incorporated my panel into the layout.

The boys finally got their dog, a pudgy cocker spaniel! They named him Teddy!
1. I created a two-page layout rather than a card.
2. I flipped the sketch 90 degrees. The square photo of the boys replaced the square sentiment on the card.
