Loving Each & Every Day | Rae BarthelSupplies: [Indie Bloom] INB-3418 6 x 6 Paper Pad, INB-3421 Title Stickers.
Happy Monday! A new sketch makes it happier anyway, right?
This week’s sketch is based on this card from BasicGrey design team member Rae Barthel. Her card was inspired by the sentiment sticker she chose and she used the colors in the sticker to guide her in choosing which patterned papers to use.
Upon first look, you wouldn’t guess that Rae’s card was made form only two products, would you? To add interest and dimentions, she used a die cut and a border punch on two of the card’s patterned papers. Rae notes, “To makethe rosette, I cut two 1″ strips from the 6″ x 6″ paper pad. Each stripmakes 1/2 of the rosette. Then I simply accordion folded each strip, adhered the strips together to create a 12″ strip, and then adhered the ends to create a rosette.” Talk about making your patterned paper work for you!
This week’s sketch could easily be translated into a card or layout design. Whatever you feel like creating – go for it! Or if you’re feeling extra inspired, create both while you already have coordinating product out!
