It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #39 – sketch.
And here is my take:
I knew I wanted to do a frame as soon as I saw the sketch. My only question was how to keep the design clean & simple.
I decided that if the pattern was only peeking out, it wouldn’t be overwhelming. That narrowed down my paper choices to those with white backs.
In addition, I chose to just stamp a sentiment and not use any additional images (again, to keep the overall design CAS).
To create the frame, I turned the paper pattern-side down. I then used a T-ruler and pencil to draw a square in the center. Then I took my Xacto knife and cut diagonally, from corner to corner, of the drawn square. Finally a bit of scoring along the drawn square’s edges and my paper folded back easily.
I know it probably seems like the white sentiment square is just centered under the opening allowing the blue card base to show through, but I actually did a frame there too. I took a piece of blue cardstock and used a square die to cut an opening then backed that with the white sentiment panel. I think it adds a nice finishing touch to the final card.
I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
