Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 687. This week we have a sketch.
I have not used the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper very much. I think I did have something earlier in the week. I am using this beautiful paper and the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack. With its punch outs, this pack helps to make making a card easy, quick, and gorgeous. Here's my card.
The base of this card is Rich Razzleberry 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half at 4 1/4.
The Blackberry Beauty DSP is cut to 3 x 5 1/2. Use Gold Foil to add some interest at the top and bottom of this patterned paper. I cut two pieces 3/4 x 4 1/2. Add one to the top and one to the bottom. I used glue and my grid paper to make sure it was all centered. Glue all of that to the base of the card. I had some Gold Foil left so I used a 1/4 inch to put under my focal piece. I used the Banners Pick a Punch to punch the end of this foil.
The leaves and acorns are part of the Ephemera Pack. Just punch it out. I added this with dimensionals. I also colored the entire image with Wink of Stella. It's so pretty. It really doesn't show in the picture.
The saying is from the Welcoming Woods stamp set. Stamp on a scrap of Basic White and trim around with snips. Add the sentiment with glue.
For the inside of the card the words are from Welcoming Woods. The stem is punched from the Ephemera Pack. Do you notice the single leaves? I have a couple smudges on my paper somehow. I inked up one of the leaves from the stamp that had a group of leaves. I stamped them where I needed them. No mistakes, just a chance to embellish, right?
So there you go. This card was easy and fast. It's also beautiful if I do say so myself. Thanks for checking out the blog today. I hope you'll try this sketch. It would work with lots of different designer papers.
