I love a good card sketch. It gives me a chance to create a project with a little head start. And we have a great one from Diana this month over at SSI. Check it out:
I decided to break out the Cupcakes and Carousels DSP along with the Carousel Birthday stamp set for this card. Here is my creation:
I started with a Peekaboo Peach card base and added the carousel horse paper with hints of Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach and Early Espresso. I used my Layering Circles framelits to cut the burst patterned paper in the same colors. For my banner I cut some Copper Foil and embossed with the with Festive Embossing Folder. If you haven't tried embossing the Foil Sheet, you need to! It really adds a wow factor! I layered my sentiment onto some more Peekaboo Peach and then added a Calypso Coral flower with a Classy Designer Button. Here is the inside:
I couldn't decide what color to stamp the horse on the inside so I made my own ink pad with a baby wipe and some re-inkers and used all the colors! Such a fun and easy technique and I like how it looks like the DSP on the front.
I have a complete supply list below. Head back to SSI for more projects using this card sketch and take some time to yourself this week to create one and upload it!
