Welcome, welcome! I’m so pleased to show off the card sketch today. I think this one is going to be a fun one. I can’t wait to see the variations that you will come up with!
In the example that I’ve created, I used a watercolor illustration as the main image and then added a layer of color underneath with the second set of 9 squares. Once it was assembled I really felt like it needed one more layer underneath and so I added a square of vellum not indicated on the card sketch along with a bit of bling.
I can’t get over how those layers really pop. This really has to be one of my favorite ways to really bring out a simple image.
How you use this card sketch is up to you. If you’d like to change the orientation of the base card, add some embellishments, use a different number of tiles 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! 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…
