I'm excited to be participating in my first Stampin' with Friends Blog Hop. A Card Sketch Challenge with a Birthday Theme is the focus of this blog hop. I created my own card sketch (my first of many, I hope) and then designed a birthday card with it. My card features products from the Pansy Petals Suite and one of our newest In Colors, Fresh Freesia. I hope you like this card as much as I loved designing it.
Card Sketch Cutting & Scoring Dimensions
***Please note that dimensions and shapes can be changed to suit your own creative expression.
- Card Base = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 1/2" on long side, fold in half.
- Card front layer (DSP) = 5 1/4" x 4"
- Small card stock square = 1 1/4" x 1 1/4"
- Large card stock square = 1 3/8" x 1 3/8"
- Card stock for sentiment = use size and shape to accommodate your chosen sentiment.
- Ribbon, trim or card stock to go across card front = 1/4" – 1/2"
- Basic White or other neutral card stock for the inside of card = 5 1/4" x 4"
The pansies were cut from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper using the small pansy die cut from the Pansy Dies. I fussy cut the small leaves from another print in the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper pack. I placed a small Pale Papaya rhinestone from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in the center of each pansy for a bit of bling. I wrapped Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon around the entire card front and tied a knot at the right side. The sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set was stamped in Fresh Freesia ink on Basic White card stock then punched with the Double Oval Punch. I decided to layer white on white ovals.
