A new week....a new sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You. This week it is Laura's turn, and again she designed another wonderful sketch. The sketches provided by Laura and Kazan are so much fun to use. They make card making so much easier. I made a card for our friends Vera and Marcel who got a little baby girl on August 8th.
My card is not only based on Laura's sketch, but also inspired by our friends' birth announcement (at right). Actually I had in mind to send them this baby card that I created a while ago, but when I saw the birth announcement I knew that I wanted to use the Laurel patterned papers by Scenic Route.
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: Scenic Route Laurel Flower: Bazzill Button: Rusty Pickle Tools: Scor-it Mini, Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug Cut & Emboss Butterflies, QuicKutz Studio Skinni Mini Alphabet Other: Doodlebug paperfrills, thread
I made a trifold card this time. Perhaps a bit hard to see in the picture above, so here's another picture.
I used the Scor-it Mini tool on this card. A great tool for hand-scoring papers. It just helps you creating the perfect scores. Scor-it sponsored 2 Sketches 4 You two weeks ago. If you would like to learn more about the Scor-it tool please visit the Scor-it website.
I created another card based on Laura's sketch. Actually this was my first card, but I wasn't too happy about it. I do like it, but I had something else in mind......more embellishments and so on. Now it is quite clean & simple. I made this card for my friend Hanneke who celebrated her 25th birthday yesterday.
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: A2Z Essentials, Paper Salon Tools: Cuttlebug die-cut machine, Cuttlebug Cut & Emboss Butterflies, Sizzix Loopy Decorative Strip Buttons: Rusty Pickle Letters: Bookworks Mini ABC and Numbers Ink: VersaColor Pinecone #171
