Welcome to the third episode of Necessary Chaos. If you are interested in checking out some of my other card sketches pop on over and take a look. Now let’s get on to the card sketch!
This layout is quite nice when you have an image you’d like to showcase. I added a layer of patterned paper that was cut to the same size as the base card. I think this would be a lovely design to play with additional embellishments on.
This simple birthday card for my friend Diane was inspired by her love of cherries. Everyone gets her something with cherries on it. With that in mind, I decided to mix things up slightly and go with a blossoming cherry tree. The image is done in watercolor pencil.
Of course, how you use this card sketch is up to you. If you’d like to change the orientation of the base card, add or remove some embellishments, use different shapes or change the placement of any elements, it’s your card! Go for it! The flexibility is one of the things I enjoy most about the idea of using a card sketch to design. If you need a little more structure I’ve provided measurements but just like every other element in a card sketch, don’t let that limit you! 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…
