I have the third of my Sketch Saturday Guest Spot cards today, I thought I'd make a "friendship" sort of card... it's good to have a card in your stash that will fit a number of occasions!
Following along with my recent theme of "inherent laziness" I've made a card that has the 'inside' showing from the 'outside'... this time I've added a front, I just made it acetate so you can see through it! The image and sentiment are on the front the rest is... NOT, lol. As You Like It wants to know if we like CAS or Fussy... I like this "level" of CAS, so the image is the focus, but I like nice papers too.
Once again I think the sketch really lends itself to this sort of arrangement... it wouldn't have worked using the half-front sstem I used last week as the card would have fallen over :-)) The acetate was from some packaging and is really sturdy... no falling over for this puppy!
The papers are from Merci's Tangerine pad - or at least the one sheet of paper I used is, lol. The cardstock used in the double matting is from my stash.
A Random Fan is sponsoring this week's challenge, the cute girlie I've used is "Summer Scent", I flipped her to fit the sketch better, she's "fussy cut" then mounted on foam dots. The sky is from a digital paper kit from Passion Fruits called Day/Night Skies and the landscape is from Make It Crafty I coloured with Copics, added some extra shading with Prismacolor pencils and glitter to the flowers... those on the image(s) and on the paper. Cute Card Thursday and Sweet Stampin' have Floral challenges so I'm entering there,
I made the sentiment on the computer... here it is as .png file if you want it :-) Whimsy Inspirations Challenge wants to see a sentiment, I'm in. The flower is a punch I've had in my stash for yonks, as is the metal rimmed rhinestone brad. Tuesday Throwdown wants to see metal so I'm entering there.
I added a jotting panel the same shape to the inside of the card, making it a little smaller so you can't see it from the outside. I added a flower to the inside too to cover up the "legs" of the brad! That's it. Through the Craftroom Door, Art by Miran, Craft Your Passion and Simply Create Too all have Anything Goes Challenges so I'm entering them.
Hope you get a chance to check out the fab work the Design Team have come up with, hope you get a chance to enter the challenge too... it's a great little sketch and there's a great prize on offer from A Random Fan too!
I'll be back in a few days with SOMETHING from my drafts folder... I HAVE to start working on it, the twins' birthday is coming up and I haven't shared the card from their last birthday yet... eeek! Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
