Sketch 43

This week I thought I'd head towards Christmas.  

The sketch is a simple one and could be used in numerous ways.

So here is my concept:-

What you will need:-
A5 white blank card
Bremen goody bag
Dreamweaver Alphabet dies
Piece of co-ordinations green card
Scrap Red pearl card
3mm Cranberry nail heads
Dutch Doobadoo Artistic Mask
Sanding tool
0.3 Pigma Micron pen
Colorbox Cats Eye Queue - Rain forest

This is what I did:-

1 Take A5 blank card and using the olive green from the Colourbox queue ink around the front edges of the card.

2  Take a sheet of the Bremen pale green dotted 12 x 12 paper and cut a matt 1/2'' small on all 4 sides than the card blank.  Attach this to the centre of the front of the card blank

3 With the green co-ordinations card stock cut a piece that is 1/4'' smaller on all 4 sides than the pale green dotted paper.

4 Run the Artistic Mask and green card through your die cutting machine and once embossed sand the surface of the card away. I didn't make it an even distress but went for patchy.  Once this has been distressed attach to the centre of the pale green dotted paper

5 Take one of the wider strips of the 3D Star Bremen pack  and one of the narrower strips.

6 At one end of both strips cut a V into it this will give the strip a decorative end.  Bare in mind that the middle strip is the longer one and 2 shorter narrower strips will be needed for the sides.  Go around all 3 pieces with the olive green ink pad.

7 These strips can now be attached to the card.  The wider strip is attached to the front using double sided adhesive tape and the 2 narrower outer pieces attached on each side using 3D foam, they overlap the edge by approx 1/8''

8 Use the Dreamweaver Alphabet dies and cut out your sentiment.  I chose NOEL and I cut this from a scrap of Christmas Red Pearl Card.

9 Place the word on to a piece of the wider pale green dotted paper and cut a 'V' in ech end of the piece back this on to the green coordinations leaving a border approx. 1/8'' wide.

10 The Noel panel is the attached to the card using 3D foam  and is placed over the 3 vertical strips.

11 Use the Black micron pen to freehand draw lines round the bottom pale green dotted paper and around the banner panel.

12 The final decoration was 3mm cranberry nail heads which were cut into 3 and 6 nail head pieces and these were then stuck on the verical strips on the card.

There you have it my take on Sketch 43.
