Sketch Challenge 4

October 18, 2011

Along with all the fabulous tutorials that are part of your subscription each month, Craft Project Central also has a sketch challenge.  The challenge lasts for the whole month and you can enter as many times as you wish and there is a chance to win a free subscription to the month of your choice.  WooHoo.  Who doesn’t love to have something for nothing.

I embossed the Whisper White card stock using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and then added a layer of Pacific Point card stock which I embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder – the stripes run across the card.  I embossed a piece of Old Olive card stock using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing Folder and attached it to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock which has been punched along the top and bottom edges using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I attached the Old Olive piece over the Pacific Point card stock using dimensionals.  I wrapped the whole piece with Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon and then attached the piece to scored and folded Basic Black card stock.

I created my flower using the smallest leaf on the Blossom Petals Builder punch.  I punched 16 leaves from Real Red cardstock.  Once punched I used my bone folder so that the leaves curled under a little. I punched a 1/2″ circle from Real Red card stock and attached 8 petals around the circle.  I punched another 1/2″ circle from Real Red card stock and attached it over the top  of the 8 petals lining it up with the previous Real Red 1/2″ circle and then attached another 8 petals so that they were in between the previous 8 petals.  I punched another Real Red 1/2″ circle and added it over the top of the petals and again lining it up with the previous 1/2″ circle.  Then I used my Paper Piercer and Mat Pack to make a hole in the centre and added a Vintage Brad.  The flower was attached over the ribbon using a dimensional.  I tied a bow and attached it to the card front using Mini Glue Dots.

I am rather pleased with how this card turned out.  Lots of different colours and lots of texture.

What do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.
