Time is flying by! Here we are at another Wednesday already, and we have another sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches. Our lovely friend in Germany, Cindy Lovell, has a fun sketch for us this week:
I pulled out my wooden snowflake elements and inked them up with Versamark ink and covered them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used them as the three square elements in the sketch. I think these snowflakes are so pretty that I wanted them to be the stars of the show.
I added a layer of black striped vellum from the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack to the white card base. I then cut a Whisper White mat and did some crazy stitching with my sewing machine, which needed a good dusting off.
I added a sentiment made using Black Glimmer Paper cut out with a Christmas Greetings Thinlits die. I added a little Gold Cording and a White Perfect Accent, which I colored black with a Sharpie.
All in all — a very simple card with a lot of white space. And not a bit of stamping. It’s rare that I can make a card with one of these characteristics, let alone both of them.
We hope you’ll play along and make your own card using the sketch. You can see all of the different ways the design team used it at the Freshly Made Sketches site for some inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
