This was a card that Liz designed and made. I just love it! It's simple yet beautiful. I thought this would make a great sketch card for those of you (like me) who struggle with creating cards from scratch. Stamp an image on the left with some ribbon or whatever accessories you want to use and then a piece of Designer paper on the right and a greeting on top of it (embossed or not). Use different colors, different stamps, change the card to sit the other way...make it your own style as it's just a starting point.
In case you wanted to know, she embossed the tree on glossy white cardstock using a mixture of white embossing powder and irridescent ice embossing powder and then brayered over it with the cotton candy spectrum pad (emboss/resist stamping technique). If you don't have a spectrum pad and want to make your own, take a peek at this video.
Sketches are very popular these days as it gives a starting point to create a card or a scrapbook page without having to start from scratch. Usually you start with a sketch and then create the card, I did this one backwards as I wanted to give you an idea of what the sketch would look like as well. Thanks for stopping by today!
