These Summer Wednesdays are flying by! It’s already time for another sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and this week, the wildly talented Jen Mitchell is our hostess with the mostess. And look at what she has for us:
A square card! I am so glad to see these in a sketch once in a while, because I forget about making square cards! It’s so routine to just cut that sheet of card stock in half and go to work, that I often forget that cards can be made in other sizes.
I needed a card to go with a wedding gift, so that is what I started with for this sketch. I hadn’t used the Flourishing Phrases bundle yet, and I thought it would be perfect for a wedding card, so that was the next step in my design process.
I started by layering a piece of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate over a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I love these acetate sheets! One side has silver foil while the reverse side has gold foil. I chose to use the silver side for this card, as I thought it looked perfect for a wedding theme.
I chose a color palette of Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Wild Wasabi, and Garden Green. I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to make the tag. The leaves were cut using the Flourish Thinlits, and the sentiment was embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.
I stamped the flower twice, cutting out the top layer and popping it up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
We hope you’ll be able to play along and join us this week! We love to see what you create and post in the gallery. Meanwhile, be sure to drop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team created for a big dose of creative inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
