Wow, these one week challenges really run me ragged! I have about 6 cards ready to put together, but not enough time to do it:( I only have one card today, but I will be using the same sketch again. This weeks sketch is brought to you by Freshly Made Sketches #102. I will also enter this card over at the Doodle Pantry challenge #38, and finally, I will be adding it to my Operation Write Home box🙂
Here is the sketch for Freshly Made #102.
I think this looks a little brighter than it actually is, but only a little. I used the auto correct feature, but the card is really bright! 🙂 For this card, I used all Doodle Pantry, it’s from a kit called Vintage Stocking. It’s one of the new images for September. You can check out the blog, enter the blog challenge, or check out the sale going on until Sept. 11th.
Using my Print Shop, which I always do, I printed the green paper with the purple layered behind it and cut that layer out, I also printed the blue layer with the purple layer attached and cut that out. I made the purple oval on PS also and cut it out backing it with plain cardstock, because the paper I print on for images isn’t very thick. The stocking is printed, cut out, then layered onto of the purple oval. I cut and pasted to get the stocking border to look like a ribbon. I think next time I will make it smaller. I do like how it turned out though:)
When making cards for Operation Write Home, I try to give the cards some dimension, without making them bulky or have things that might poke through an envelope. These cards go to a sorting and packaging stop before getting sent off to our troops and then sent back to our troops loved ones. Lots of traveling, so it must hold up during the travels;)
I have a bunch of things started so I know I will be back sooner than later! Thanks for stopping by today!:) I truly appreciate your interest in my cards and causes! 🙂
