Card Sketch February #1

Wednesday, February 6, 2008

Happy Wednesday morning! Another Wednesday another card sketch! Remember the embellishments are just a suggestion, either go with a heart or something else. You don't have to stick the sketch exactly. As always the digital template is available for download in my store, and remember to check out the other templates I have in the store too!

I have to say that this is one I struggled with, until I decided to go hybrid. This is the one sweet day kit by Corinna Neilsen at Prima Hybrid and I just can't stop using it. Although this is the first time I used the floral paper and frame. Just love the color scheme. Anyway I struggled trying to get the sketch to work with some paper supplies, then just went digital/hybrid and was done 20 minutes later! Go figure! Some days are just digi days I guess!

"with love" hybrid card by Di Hickman
Supplies: Corinna Neilsen "one sweet day" digital kit from Prima Hybrid; Heidi Swapp chipboard heart; Heidi Grace pin; font: Harrington

Now some of the sketch girls said they struggled with this one too. Tricky how that works out. Yet other sketches you think will be hard, come together so simply! Anyway the girls rocked it this week! If you're looking for inspiration for Valentine cards then you're in for a treat, plus a few other themes thrown into the mix! Enjoy!

Too funny...I almost went digi just for the stitched-background part of this one (knew I wanted to use the hamsa!) till I saw the background stamp and decided to use that instead...guess I should say I almost went 'hybrid' :)

Audrey Pettit (APet),  February 13, 2008 at 3:43 AM  

I feel like I struggled a bit with this one, too. But maybe because I was making a masculine card, which isn't as much fun as one with lots of frou-frous. But, it's always fun to play along. Thanks for the sketch for to the DT for the great samples.
