Weekend Sketch Challenge #13


Here's the card I created for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #13. You can find her original post here. I loved this sketch!

I started with a Soft Sky CS base of 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", and then scored the CS at 5 1/2" and 8 1/8". I used Basic Black ink on my Baroque background stamp, then folded over the small Soft Sky strip of paper and used ribbon to secure it together.

I then used my corner rounder on two pieces of scrap paper (Basic Black & Whisper White), and pierced the black layer before adhering it to the white layer. These were then attached to the stamped portion of the card. I stamped the sentiment from Flowers & Flourishes in Basic Black ink, and stamped my Garden Silhouettes image onto Whisper White CS. I don't have exact dimensions for the image, I just used my paper trimmer to cut it to a size I liked. :) I then layered it onto a piece of Basic Black CS and adhered it to the card. Super easy!

Details:
Paper - Soft Sky, Basic Black, Whisper White
Stamps - Baroque, Garden Silhouettes, Flowers & Flourishes
Ink - Basic Black
Miscellaneous - Black Double Stitched Ribbon
