It is amazing what you find when you clean your desk & how bits of left over scraps will come together to make a card, let alone fit a challenge. This is what I did for the Sketch Challenge over at Inkispirations Challenge I took the colours from scraps lying on my desk & teamed them with the scraps of DSP. I don’t feel so guilty of not cleaning my desk! That is my excuse anyhow.
I was recently asked if I stamped my envelopes to match my cards. Ever since I started making cards, I had to match the envelopes to my cards. I know the ladies I used to do cards with, thought it funny & strange, but that was me – has to match. I also do the inside to match as well. In future, I will show you both the envelope & inside, along with the card.
Base Card – Crumb Cake– 5 7/8″ x 4 1/4″ or 15cm x 10.5cm
Layer 1 – Cherry Cobbler – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Very Vanilla – 2 1/4″ x 2″ or 6cm x 5cm
Layer 3 – DSP – 2 1/8″ x 1 7/8″ or 5.5cm x 4.5cm
Layer 4 – Soft Suede – 5 3/4″ x 7/8″ or 14.5cm x 1cm
Layer 5 – Early Expresso – 3″ x 2 1/2″ or 8cm x 6.5cm Layer 6 – Very Vanilla – 2 78″ x 2 1/8″ or 7.5cm x 6cm
I adhered both pieces of DSP to Soft Suede & Very Vanila & attached to Cherry Cobbler – as per the sketch. Using Early Expresso & Soft Suede Inks, I stamped the image randomly onto the piece of Very Vanilla, adhered it to the Expresso Expresso, then to the Cherry Cobbler. This piece was then adhered to the Base Card – Crumb Cake.
Using my Boho Blossoms Punch, I punch 5 flowers in Cherry Cobbler & adhered these randomly to the card. Basic Pearls were adhered to the middle of each flower.
I used my Cherry Cobbler SU Marker to colour in the greeting, stamped directly onto Very Vanilla & punched out using the Word Window Punch. I adhered this to the punched piece of Soft Suede which had been punched using my Modern Label. This was adhered to the card. I didn’t exactly place it as per the sketch, so I hope the operators will forgive for this.
