Get Inspired By A Guest Designer Card

Happy Wednesday all! Today is another card by our guest designer Danielle Flanders. If you want to learn more about her, please refer to this post.

Today Danielle has used our April Card Sketch to create her latest card. You will see next week how the craft girls used this sketch so make sure you come back for that!

Our sketch today features a scallop like bottom with a flower, banner, and some buttons. I asked Danielle to make the sketch her own. Let's see what she created with it!

April Card Sketch


"For my project with the Twirly Girly collection this week, I was inspired by this fun card sketch! The scalloped circles reminded me of this circle die I have. You can get the same look with a Silhouette cut if you don't have this particular die. I did change up the sketch slightly, but overall used almost all of the elements in one way or another! I loved the big blocks of colored cardstock on the back of the Twirly Girly - Itty Bitty Ballerina paper, so I used the gray in that paper to cut out the circles with my Cuttlebug machine. I just placed the circle cover plate die over the paper and ran it through my machine to cut out the circles. Then I tried different Twirly Girly papers underneath and loved how the polkadots looked from the coordinating Party Dress paper! Everything in this line coordinates so well, so there's not much thinking involved when it comes to putting little stacks and pieces and colors together! The little orange flowers peeking through the circles are so pretty. Next, I wanted a floral embellishment, just like the sketch, to be my focal point, so I found a sticker from the Twirly Girly Sticker Sheet that I loved. To add dimension, I used one of the brads from the Twirly Girly Brads that is already layered, and all I did was attach over the center of the sticker. Instead of placing a horizontal piece of paper across the card like the sketch, I trimmed a tag out of the This & That paper and placed it vertically. To add a sentiment, I used a couple of the Twirly Girly Mini Sticker Sentiments and trimmed the ends of them into little banners with my scissors. The colors in these papers make me so happy! I wanted to keep the background soft and interesting at the same time, but not too much to detract from the beautiful focal point.
