Card Sketch July #2

Wednesday, July 9, 2008

Happy Humpday! That's Wednesday, midweek, over the hump and headed to the weekend! Boy am I ready! This weeks sketch is below and the digital template is available free in my store for a limited time!

The horizontal stripes give you lots of options, from using striped papers, monochromatic shades of color, or the pre-printed patterned strips like I chose from scrapworks, or you could assemble your own patterns. I opted to make a christmas card as part of my theme for Christmas in July challenge. To make the chipboard ornaments pop I mounted them on white cardstock, straying from the sketch slightly but that's ok!
