Guest Designing with Card Patterns

Saturday, December 10, 2011

I'm absolutely beyond thrilled to get to be guest designing, this week, with the Card Patterns' team...
for Sketch 145!
And here's what I've created to hopefully inspire your own creations.
I started this card by trimming the right side of a piece of burgundy, patterned paper with a punched strip of olive, patterned paper; adhering the two to a portion of a journaling tag; rounding the formed piece's bottom left corner; adhering a strip of suede, polka dot, patterned paper, vertically, just left of the burgundy, patterned paper's center; and machine stitching, with olive-threaded, straight stitches, around the edges of the burgundy, patterned paper and, with olive-threaded, zig-zag stitches, between all vertical, patterned, paper connections.
I then trimmed the left side of the suede, polka dot, patterned paper with a suede-colored, pom-pom trim...
trimmed it, to its right, with a length of twill tape, tied, in a bow, near the top edge of the prepped piece, and embellished with an olive-colored button, laced with a couple of hemp twine bows.
The entire prepped piece was then adhered, with foam tape, to the Crumb Cake, cardstock, card face, before adding the glittery, dimensional, "You're the Best", sentiment rosette, to complete the look.
Color inspiration for this card came from Color Throwdown's Challenge #171.
Before I'm off to a Christmas celebration with my extended family, I want to send out a HUGE thank you to Tracy, Michelle, and the whole Card Patterns' team!  I'm honored to be a part of it all even for just a week!  Please be sure to run by the challenge link above to see what this talented team has whipped up with the sketch above, as well as to find out what you're playing for this week; and thanks, ever so much, for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!
