Welcome to Make a Card Monday Challenge #5.  Learn more about Make a Card Monday Weekly Challenges HERE 

This week we have a sketch challenge.  I use to think sketches were hard, but after you’ve done a few they become quite easy and to be honest a sketch is now my go to for inspiration when I need a “Kickstart in my Creativity”

How to Use a Sketch 

Sketches are basically blueprints for your creativity. Sketches are made up of different shapes and elements and are basically an outline to follow.  The purpose of a sketch is to give you inspiration for the layout of your card design.

I’ve added the Whole lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper to the base of my project, this paper pack is my absolute favourite.  My greeting comes from the Colourful Seasons Stamp Set and and have been die cut using the Stitched Framelit Dies and Big Shot Machine.

To finish my project I’ve added Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon.

Alternative Tips & Ideas

There are different ways you can interpret this sketch try one of the following suggestions

  • Emboss a piece of cardstock with your favourite embossing folder to add texture or your favourite Patterned Paper
  • Change the orientation of the sketch design and create a landscape card
  • Replace the Square greeting with a Round Greeting.
