This was my first time to make a card using a sketch challenge. I see them on Splitcoast Stampers all of the time but I haven't had the time to do one until now. Beate Johns has a blog that I follow and every weekend she has a sketch and you can make a card using that sketch. So this weekend I was determined that I was going to make a card using her sketch. I turned the sketch to the side but kept the layout exactly as she had it.
Here are the details:
I took an 8x4 inch piece of SU Kraft cardstock and folded it to make a 4x4 inch card. Then a put a layer of SU Riding Hood Red that I had embossed using the Textile Cuttlebug embossing folder. After that I added a strip of Kraft cardstock that I had paper pierced along the edge and then a narrower strip of Riding Hood Red. I attached 3 silver brads to that strip and added it to the card. The I stamped using Riding Hood Red ink on Kraft cardstock an image from Pocket Silhouettes from SU. I added this final layer to the card front with dimensionals.
It was a fairly easy card but I just love the look of the Red on Kraft. Enjoy!
