Card Week, Part 5

Card Sketch #18

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

"Roughin It" by Janette Kincaid
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: My Mind’s Eye, We R Memory Keepers; Alphabet stickers: Jillibean Soup; Chipboard Embellishments: My Mind’s Eye; Ink: Ranger Distress Ink; Embroidery floss: DMC; Black Thread: Gutermann, Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread; Journal Pen: Zig; Adhesive: Glue Arts, Helmar; Circle Punches: Marvy

This sketch was an easy transition after doing the flags in last week’s sketch. The notched banners are almost the same just on a larger scale (and of course there’s no flag pole!)

Variation #1 – I used the card sketch to create a one-page layout.

Variation #2 – I took inspiration from the vertical strips in the sketch and placed my paneled patterned paper horizontally.

Variation #3 – I replaced the message rectangle with my title and journaling.

Variation #4 – Rather than adding straight lines, my stitching repeats the cardstock and patterned paper circle embellishments.

"Fly High card" by Katrina Hunt
Supplies - Patterned Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle (Paradise); Cardstock: American Crafts; Buttons: Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker; Adhesives: Scotch and Fabri Tac; Ribbon: Hobby Lobby; Punches: EK Success, Martha Stewart

Variation 1 - Rotated card orientation.

Variation 2 - No strips of paper running up and down on width of card. I cut strips, adhered to card stock and then punch circled out.

Variation 3 - Added a bow and button.

Variation 4 - Message is very small.

"Fishing Below the Falls" by Michele Edwards
Supplies - Cardstock: American Crafts, Bazzill; Patterned paper: Scrapbook Walls; Fish brads: unknown; Embellishments: fly was made by my husband; Alphabets: Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook); Floss: DMC

Spring has sprung, and that means that the trout fishing season will soon be here! We love our visits to Sauble Falls. My husband spends hours fishing, while I watch, both him and the river. I'm always amazed when I see the trout leaping up the falls! I can never get a photo of THAT though, lol!


1. Instead of a card, I turned the sketch on its side to create a background for my two-page layout.

2. I made the strips wider, and punched a scalloped edge to further the water theme.

3. I stitched a scalloped wave pattern through some of the waves, and continued the stitching into the photographs.

I love the colors in the background in the first one. What a beautiful cabin, that would be so much fun.

The second one is pretty!

Love the waves you used in your layout, that's perfect with the photos.
