Sketch To The Rescue

Hey scrappers, this is Kate from Sassy and Scrappy and I'm happy to be here with you today.  I was looking for a little inspiration and came across a great blog with lots of beautiful cards and great sketches.  I highly recommend you check out The Sweetest Thing.  I found a sketch that I really liked and decided to give it a go.

There weren't any measurements included with the sketch, so I'll include mine.  As always with sketches you can flip and move things around.  I'm using a standard 4 1/4 by 5 1/2-inch card.  Starting from the lower left corner: 3 1/2 x 3, 3 1/2 x 2 1/2, 1 1/4 x 5 and 1 x 5-inches.

The camera is a die cut image from the online Silhouette store.

The banners below were part of the reason I chose the card sketch.  All sort of great sentiments that can be added to a card or layout.

Here's my completed card.  Simple, but great pops of color and patterns.

I decided to create another card using the same sketch.

A view of the dimension on this card.

  • Solid Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink
  • Pattern Paper:  Card #1-Basic Grey "Out of Print" and Card #2-October Afternoon "Thriftshop"

  • Scallop Edge Border Punch:  Stampin' Up!
  • Oval Frame:  Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals (Large)
Thanks for stopping by!
