I need to get my card-making mojo back because this simple sketch took four tries to produce something that cut the mustard. Sometimes that happens when I have fewer constraints. Somehow it’s harder to focus on one idea when the sky is the limit. Still, I managed to create a cute little spring inspired card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketch challenge, which helped ward off today’s gray sky blues.
I used Simple Stories’ Vintage Bliss 6×6 paper stack for this card and flipped the sketch on its side. I used two different scallop punches for the accent pieces, tied ribbon along the top and, of course, inked all the edges.
I know most people are probably focused on fall or Christmas cards right now, but since I rented a booth at a resale shop I try to keep it stocked well ahead of the next holiday. I price my cards at $2.00 each and usually sell a few each month. It’s a great way to stay creative, share a little cheer and get a monetary reward in return.
Beautiful card with such pretty papers! Great take on the sketch! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
Thanks, Karren. I’m so glad you popped over for a look.
