Card Sketch August #4

Wednesday, August 22, 2007

Happy Wednesday! How are you all? Ready for some card making? I can't stop! This one is loosely based on a card I made back in January. Just added some strips to it for interest, and remember the flower is a suggestion you could use anything (like a heart on the original). The digital template is available for download here.

Ok here is my paper card this week. Nice and simple. I used cardstock for the horizontal stripes. Not sure on the button and flower manufacturers as they are OLD! Digging through my stash still! Oh and note the matching envelope! I left a greeting off mine, gonna add it as I need it to the inside of the card.

Supplies: Cardstock: DCWV; Patterned Paper: DCWV; Envelope template: one heart... one mind; Other: button, flower

Everything is so beautiful in its appearance as various cards are made from your original template. Love Cindy's card with its ribbon ties along with Wendy's use of brown as the main color. Each has an unique take that makes it their own. Thanks again for the lovely template and the fabulous previews. Leavin LUV! XOXOXO
