Is it just me, or does it always seem like cards are needed when we have the least amount of time to create them? This is why I love card sketches, like those found in every issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today. This particular sketch, found in the Fall 2014 issue (download for free HERE!), was calling my name as soon as I laid eyes on it.
Wanting to keep my card simple and my supplies minimal—another nice solution when I'm short on time—I looked to patterned paper for a print that works with this sketch. Sure enough, a sheet of my Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic paper worked like a charm. Two sheets, actually, as I used both the yellow dot and the trio of small journaling spots on this sheet.
In place of the embellishments outlined on the sketch, I allowed the various prints found on the smaller journaling cards to act as dividers across the card, with my letter stickers and enamel dots furthering the division. And just like that, a quick card was born!
Happy World Cardmaking Day, friends! I hope you're enjoying the creative celebration!
