Welcome to Episode 11 of Necessary Chaos. This week, in addition to providing the usual card sketch with measurements, I thought I’d show three variations on the card. I’m always encouraging you to make these card sketches your own, and today I’m going to show you what I mean. First, the sketch.
I’m always looking for new ideas. This week’s idea came from a misunderstanding. I was looking at a picture of a card I found. I figured out how to make it only to discover that the original base was striped paper. Make it easy on a crafter would ya? No matter, today I’m going to show you one design that was executed in three variations. Ready? Here we go!
This first card uses a striped paper for the base card, as it did in the original card that I found. Now if you’d like to use my original file here is a link to it on Cricut Design Space. Before anyone asks, this is a font that started out as a few fonts and then was further edited by me so….I can’t exactly share it. It’s cool though, huh?
In my second example, this time, the stripes are provided from strips measuring ½” wide which were then affixed to the paper. Honestly, this is probably my favorite one. I based the color scheme off some washi tape that I love.
Now, last but not least, stripes provided by washi tape! Who doesn’t love this stuff? I honestly spend more time looking for washi tape than I do any other crafting material.
And there you have it. Three cards, three looks, one card sketch. I didn’t even get into adding embellishments. I have a feeling I’ll be doing this one a few times.
I’d love to see what you create with this card sketch. If you’ve used this card sketch and would like to share your finished card with everyone fill out the Mister Linky below. I can’t wait to see what you’ve made! Until next time…
