After last weeks break, we are back with the March Card Sketch on the Sketch Support blog. Can you believe that it is March?
As you all know, I am not much of a card maker, so I decided to make this into a 2-page layout. Here is the sketch that I started with. You can download it on the Sketch Support blog.
This is the part of the layout that resembles the sketch. I used a new collection from Little Yellow Bicycle called Paradise. I just love all the awesome papers that come in this line and this was a good way to get a little piece of each one. I stitched each square with brown floss (that took a little bit of time) and added some of the chipboard accents to the bottom to replace the message on the sketch.
I also stitched through some of the chipboard elements. This is easier than you may think.
I created a little banner element at the top of my page and added a zig zag stitch along the top.
The title was hand cut from one of the papers. I included a couple of the flowers from the paper as well (that's okay, right? After all, I am a girl). I added a button to the center because my BFF believes that no layout is complete without a button or two.
I kept the journaling 'short & sweet' on this page. There will be many more pages that follow this one that will tell the story of our day.
I dug into my stash of brads and added a few along the border strip. This is a great way to add some dimension to a page.
If you have some time, be sure to stop over to the Sketch Support blog and check out all the cards/creations using this card sketch.
