Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge

Hello friends! I am glad you came by today. I am already thinking of thanking gift givers after Christmas. (I have already received/opened a couple of gifts-tee hee!). With that in mind, I used the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge to make a Thank You card! (Remember, our sketch is just a starting point!)

I thought that making those stripes would be hard. I chose a size I wanted to make that part of the sketch. Then I laid two pieces of paper on my work surface that were that size, one on top of another, opposite prints facing up. I placed a ruler over the image and used the dots on the top pattern for my angle. Using a pencil, I drew my cut lines. Since the pieces of paper were small enough to keep tight in my hands, I used my Paper Snips to cut across the pencil lines. I chose which sides to use and lined them up. I taped the seams on the back, and then adhered them to an Early Espresso piece of card stock for a frame. The DSP is from the Season of Style Designer Series Stack. This pack was so popular it is back-ordered through January. 

Thank you for stopping by today! I'd love to read your comments, so please leave one below. Are you ready for Christmas? I'm doing pretty well, so have a bit of time to enjoy family that are visiting.

Patti, when I received ny paper stack, I never dreamed there was a way to use all the DSP in one design. But, you have beautifully showcased this collection! Love it!
