Basic Card Sketch : 4.30.12

Happy Spring | Rae Barthel

We’re switching things up a bit this week and providing you with a sketch based on this card from BasicGrey design team member Rae Barthel.

Rae notes, “Ahhhhh, spring! I chose to base my ‘springy’ card around the Matsuri patterned paper, which I feel is the perfect depiction of spring, with its darling birds among the blooming branches.  The ‘happy spring’ chipboard piece provided the perfect sentiment for my card, and I love the flower/brad accent that I nestled among distressed punched circles. I couldn’t resist the banner and love how the alphabet stickers look on it! This card fell together quite naturally, thanks to the delicious patterned papers which tie together so effortlessly.”

Yes, this week’s sketch is based from a card but that doesn’t mean that’s what you have to create!  Use it for whatever you’d like – a card, layout, mini album, etc.  Your project, your choice!

We’d love to see what you create from this week’s sketch. Leave a comment below with a link to your project and we’ll select one comment at random to receive a collection pack of your choice. Comment must be posted by May 6, 2012 at 11:59p MST.

If you upload your layout to your blog or online gallery, we hope you’ll also upload it to our BasicGrey flickr pool and note what products you’ve used so that other BG fans can find inspiration from your work easily.
