Today’s card has been created using the below layout. It’s my brother’s birthday today so thought this sketch would be good to use for his card. The only stamping I’ve done is the sentiment – so check out below to see how I used this sketch.
For this design you could stamp your image as a whole on one piece of cardstock then slice it up into the three sections or as I did cut three different sizes of scrap cardstock and then layer various widths of different coloured cardstock.
I love the Brights colours so went with this colour family. I ended up using all 10 colours on my card. At the top we have a thin strip measuring 5mm then a wider strip at 1 1/2cm. The thin strips are Poppy Parade, Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo, the wider strips are Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green. The measurements are repeated for the Mango Melody and Gorgeous Grape cardstock. The bottom Daffodil Delight strip is 1 cm wide.
I had originally thought I’d stamp the sentiment on the Daffodil Delight strip but once it was all together it needed something else so I die cut the ‘swirl’ from the Painted Labels die and then stamped the sentiment on a Stitched Circle. After completing the card I went looking for a bag to put the gift in and look what I found in my stash 🙂
After completing the card I still had some spare strips of cardstock left over so created another card with them.
The sentiment is from the Many Mates set and has been punched and matted using the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch – love this punch.
Well that’s all for today – I hope you’ve enjoyed these bright cards. I hope you’ll give the sketch a go for one of your creations.
Until next time …
