PPA Sketch Challenge - Join Us!


Happy Thursday! I was apprehensive about this sketch, but once I figured out how to get the angles easily, it was fun and a snap! I simply cut TWO full sized pieces of Epic Day This and That designer series paper to fit above the strip of Epic Day This and That Washi Tape. Next, I placed the light colored one on top of the blue one and noted with a pencil where I wanted my left (2 marks) and right (1 mark) and bottom right (1 mark) ends to stop. I don't know if that makes sense, but it was easier than I thought it would be! 

Lastly, I thought I needed some dimension at those angles, so I used my Paper Piercing Tool and the Essentials Paper Piercing template for the lines.

I chose to use Happy Birthday from the Itty Bitty Banners (stamped in Baked Brown Sugar) and then easily and perfectly cut it out using the Bitty Banners Framelits in my Big Shot. The Candy Dots below just add a little more texture to my card.

Whaddya think? I am happy with the results! I hope you will be inspired and will create your own card using our sketch as a starting point. Please leave your comments below, I LOVE to read them all!
