Card Sketch April #3

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Continuing my theme of using my published cards as a starting point for sketches here is one from 2008, published in a stamping magazine. The design is very basic but could be fussed up with stamping, embossing etc. That is the great thing about sketches, they can be used as is, or as a starting point for more elaborate projects!
Don't forget the digital template is available in my store for a limited time, snag it while you can!

I figured I'd share the published card the sketch was based on. This one uses cardstock and stamps, taking full advantage of not using patterned paper, but making my own with stamps :) Love the stamp sets by Fiskars great mix of backgrounders and sentiment stamps in their packages!

Not been able to do much crafting for a few weeks :(

I have made a gift card using this sketch. Really love how simple it is and great for showcasing some of the gorgeous papers about (that I can't bear to cut into!!)
