Card Sketch #19
"You're So Sweet" by Suzanna Lee
Supply List - Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned paper and Die Cut Shape: My Minds Eye; Ink: Martha Stewart, Colorbox; Stamp: Unity; Doily: We R Memory Keepers; Washi Tape: SEI, American Crafts; Chipboard: Bella Boulevard; Felt: Twinkle Brands; Canvas Tag: Ormolu
Variation 1: I extrapolated and made a layout with this weeks card sketch. Someday, I will actually venture into the world of card making and enjoy it... Until then, layouts reign!
Variation 2: Rather than use patterned paper for the semi-circles above and below the main circle, I used a large Unity stamp.
Variation 3: The stitching just got lost on the busy backgrounds that I used so I went with small strips of complimentary paper instead.
