Card Sketch Nov #1

Wednesday, November 7, 2007

Happy Wednesday! And Happy card-sketch-versary! Exactly one year ago today I started posting my sketches here so I figured it would be fitting to go back in time and reuse the sketch (albeit a little spruced up sketch!). I really cannot believe it's been a year, totally flown by! And to think that back then there was just me doing a sketch and a sample... how things have progressed!!! Anyway here is this weeks sketch, and usual the digital template is available for download for a limited time.

My original card for this sketch got picked up for publication so I whipped up this one using SEI Kaboom. I love this line, no matter that its pretty old now. Got some more of it last month from one of my teams and I still love it. Especially the puffy stickers. Have a couple of projects planned out for these papers already. The "We're so sorry!" is reverse printed using this technique for printing in white text. Love this card! Inside greeting which reads "we forgot your BIRTHDAY!", also printed from computer.

Supplies: Paper, cardstock and sticker: SEI (Kaboom); Brads: Doodlebug; pen: sharpie; other: tag, photoshop

TIP: If you don't want to drag out the sewing machine then either use rub-ons, stamps or draw the stitching by hand with a pen.

Love your card sketch for this week with its wonderful stitched sections so artfully displayed with those beautiful patterns. All the variations attest to the beautiful and versatility of your fabulous designs. TFS.

So glad you had the opportunity to have a little rest from your many endeavors and also to enjoy your family. HUGS!

Ok I cheated a bit. I didn't sew or stich for this one. I used ribbon instead. Check it out on my blog.
