It’s a new week in the Freshly Made Sketches land and that means it’s time for a new sketch. Our hostess this week is the very talented Jacquie Southas and she has a great one for us. I love sketches that contain a collage! Take a look:
My dad’s birthday is on the 4th of July. I always thought that was so cool! He gets fireworks and family barbecues every year to celebrate his birthday. Except for this year — no big gatherings during Coronavirus. I decided to use the sketch for his birthday card, and since masculine cards are always such a challenge for me, I was thankful to get to use the 4th of July theme for his card.
I started the card by cutting out three stars from Poppy Parade, Misty Moonlight and Whisper White card stock using the Stitched Stars dies for the focal images in the collage. I placed them on a card base that was sponged with some Balmy Blue ink and stamped with an old stamp set that was the closest thing to fireworks that I have.
The sentiment is from a Paper Pumpkin stamp set and I added some little stars from the Snowflake Sequins collection.
We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
