Card Sketch February #3

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

I love simple and clean card designs so this card sketch was a no-brainer design for me. I'll be using this one a lot in the future! Check out my digital store to grab the free digital template, available for a limited time!

When I was making this card I had a clear plan in mind: nice and simple! The paper is pre-printed colorblocked paper by Colorbok, simply add the ribbon and stamping :) The flower design well didn't turn out as I planned. I knew I had some Heidi Swapp acetate flower stickers in white, but I turned my room upside down trying to find them!!! I know they are in here somewhere, but dang if I can find them! Anyway I improvised with a white pen!

I love that card sketch. Might even be something I could do with my to left hands :). I love all of examples you're showing. Thanks so much for sharing.

I didn't find this sketch easy until I rotated it 90 degrees left.

You can find mine on
