It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our talented friend, Jen Mitchell, is our hostess. Take a look at her fun sketch:
I’ll have to admit those little baby circles in the sketch threw me for a loop. I had no idea what to do with them. Then I decided that I needed to make a birthday card for this weekend, so I would start with that. When I looked at my stamp sets, I decided to use the Pattern Play set, which I hadn’t inked up yet. And lo and behold, there was a stamp with little semi-circles/scallops that I thought would be perfect. I love it when that happens!
The designer series paper from the Playing with Patterns pack is really the star of the show on this card. I love the fun colors and the diagonal stripes. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with a circle die. A slightly larger circle was cut out of Night of Navy card stock as well. The scallops were stamped with Calypso Coral ink on Calypso Coral card stock and cut out with my paper snips. I then stamped the sequins/confetti with Crushed Curry ink.
A little white baker’s twine bow was added as an embellishment.
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!
