April Card Sketch!

Hi there. Pam here sharing three different takes on our April sketch. Last week our guest designer, Danielle Flanders, shared her take on this sketch. You can see the card here. Today, we will see three more versions of the card: use it, tweak it and change it.

April Card Sketch

Up first is Kathy with her "use it" take on this sketch.

"Hi! It's Kathy back today to share a birthday card I created with the beautiful Twirly Girly collection and this fresh new sketch from Pam. When I'm limited on time one of my favorite crafty short cuts is to use a sketch as it is.

Keep in mind, when creating a project with lots of different patterned papers, choose contrasting patterns and colors so that they don't all blend together. Each paper I chose pops out from the other showing all the layers that went into the design."

 

Next we have a card by Meredith. She tweaked the card a bit.

"Hey Chickaniddy lovers! I'm excited to share my card for this month's sketch challenge, since I got to "tweak" it... my favourite way to use a sketch!

As you can see, I rotated the sketch to suit my preferred orientation - I don't know why, but I almost *always* create vertical cards!


I had to include some of the beautiful gold foil paper cut with this filligree die - it turned out SO beautifully. I also thought it would be a good idea to layer some of the flower stickers to create a tiny flower pennant for my focal point!


Here you can see what I mean:

And I loved that I had coordinating stamps to add a subtle leaf detail behind my flowers! I just used the leaf image from the Date Night stamp set to add some interest to my striped paper. Love the finishing touch it added!

Embellishments: Stickers: TG14EB02, TG14EB05 Brads: TG14EB06, Enamel Hearts: TG14EB07"

Our last card is by Leigh. She changed up the card. Let's see what she created.

 
"For my card, I used the sketch but changed it up.

Since I prefer making tall cards over wide cards, I compressed the sketch and made it taller to accommodate my preferred card orientation.

I started with creating my background using the Piggy Tails patterned paper.
I diecut my scallops (using Reverse Confetti's Double Edge Scallop border), from the back of the Itty Bitty Ballerina patterned paper and layered them over each other.
My sentiment was cut from the This & That patterned paper.
I added some twine and a bow before matting my card on the back of the Itty Bitty Ballerina patterned paper.
I stitched a button to the stacked cups sticker and adhered it to my card using dimensional adhesive.

Tip: When using a sticker, feel free to add some dimensional adhesive to the back to give your card more dimension and interest.
