Facebook Live 3.10.2021 Using a Sketch to Design a Card

Welcome!  Today we are using a sketch to design a card.  This is the sketch.


Every Thursday I take part in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  One week we have a color challenge and the next week we have a sketch.

We made two cards using the sketch.  For the first we used the Hydrangea Haven stamp set and the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.  Here is the card.

My card base was Thick Basic White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.  Cut the background paper to 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 and glue onto the base.  This paper is from the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.

Use the 2nd largest rectangle from the 4 skinny rectangles from the Stitched Rectangles dies for the 4 panels.  Choose two different designer papers from Hydrangea Hill.  Add these with dimensionals.  You will need to overlap them and just use glue in some places.

The next panel is cut from Basic White using the 3 largest rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Glue this down.

Cut a hydrangea from one of the designer papers and add to the card with dimensionals.

Stamp and add the saying from Hydrangea Haven in Gorgeous Grape.

Add some Basic Pearls.

The second card uses the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set and the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.

The base for this card is Crumb Cake card stock.  The background paper is cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  Cut the strips using the same rectangle die from Stitched Rectangles.  Glue these strips to the base.

From another sheet of designer paper, cut out seashells and arrange on the front of the card.  Add with dimensionals.

Add the saying in Crumb Cake ink.

Add some of the Elegant Faceted Gems.

The video has a few extra added tips for making the cards.  Here you go!


Here's a picture of both of the cards.
