I just love a good sketch. I keep my favorites in a file on my computer so I can quickly pull one as a map when I've lost my crafty mojo. For my card this week I followed the sketch pretty much with the exception of the three dots.
I started my card with a Buff Ivory cardstock. I then matted some patterned paper from My Mind's Eye. Next I matted some more of the My Mind's Eye patterned paper in a coral geometric pattern onto some coral cardstock. For the border strip in the sketch I used coordinating patterned paper from the same My Mind's Eye paper line and punched a decorative edge on the bottom. To bring out the edge I distressed using the Distress ink marker in Old Paper. And because I just can't help myself I used some of the Mint Green Tea seam binding now offered a the Kraft Outlet. For my sentiment I used a stamp from Verve. I stamped it onto a White Pearlized Decorative Label. Using these labels makes it so easy to just stamp a sentiment onto and place on a card front or the inside of a card. To finish my card I added two stickers from Tim Holtz Crowed Attic sticker pack. This is where I thought adding three would be too much so I left it with two. That's one of the reasons I love sketches. They are just a starting point. Be sure to stop by the Kraft Journal blog to see how different the projects are from the design team using the same sketch. I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
