Card Sketch July #3

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

It's Wednesday again! Doesn't seem minutes since the last card sketch yet here is another. This one is based on a card I made EONS ago. ok not quite but it's probably 2-3 years ago. It could be kept nice, clean and simple with cardstock, or you could make it more involved with lots of patterns. You know me, my preference is clean and simple :) As usual for the digital people the layered template is available free in my store for a limited time, snag it while you can.

As I said this is a card design I've used before so I went a little different with it. The weekend I made this card I was sorting through my stash and out popped this paper from way back when. It's all pre-printed and I figured it'd fit the sketch perfectly with very little real work needed from me :) My kinda cardmaking that! Added a rub-on, a sticker and a bit of ink and ta-da!

"Thinking of U" card by Di Hickman Supplies: Patterned paper: Colorbok; Ink: Clearsnap; Rub-on: Heidi Grace; Sticker: SEI;

Lots of inspiration below from the sketch girls, some of whom got inspired and jumped on the "Christmas in July" theme for this month, totally their choice, but I love em for it! From simple, stamping, rub-ons or complicated there is something for everyone from the sketch girls. They sketch girls totally need a name though don't you think? I was thinking Diagram Diva's but I think the whole Diva thing is a little played out. If anyone has any suggestions let me know!
