WeScrap Card Crop!

Want to jump start your inspiration for your Christmas cardmaking?  Or just want to enjoy a relaxing day, cardmaking with friends?  Join us at WeScrap today and tomorrow for challenges by the iTeam and a chance to win prizes!

My first challenge this weekend is our Sketchy Saturday challenge.

Here's my card sketch:

I came across some digitally stamped images that I had printed on white cardstock and wanted to use them for this challenge.  So I re-watched a great video tutorial by Shari Carroll about using coloured pencils and then dug right in!

Here's my card:

Supplies used:  Creative Memories cardstock (kraft); Die Cuts With a View cardstock (brown); Recollections cardstock (white); Bo Bunny patterned paper; Pink Petticoat digital stamps (Yoo Hoo); Artist's Loft coloured pencils; Marvy Uchida and Martha Stewart Crafts punches; Just Cre8 stamps (Designer Labels), Glue Dots; Versamark ink; Ranger embossing powder; Sakura pen; twill tape, gingham ribbon.

I sewed a basting stitch down the centre of my twill tape and then gathered it.  I had the idea to sew the gingham ribbon over top, but was too lazy to change my thread to I just hand tacked it down.


Now that I think about it, it probably would have been just as easy to baste both ribbons together and gather them.  Then again, I wouldn't have the cool ruffled look on either side of the gingham.

I would have also preferred to have real stitching around the card edge, rather than doodling, to add more texture, but what can I say?  I was lazy last night. :(

I did dig out my Just Cre8 stamps that I designed a few years ago - Designer Labels - and stamped the back in Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Just a nice touch to let the person know that you cared enough to send YOUR very best... :)

For a chance to win a RAK, create a card using this sketch and head over to WeScrap and post it in the gallery, while adding a post with a link in this thread.  I'll randomly draw a winner when the challenges are over!
