Basic Card Sketch : 3.18.13

BasicGrey Sketches

13 March BasicGrey Card

This week’s sketch from BG sketch artist Susan Stringfellow is perfect for the next time you find yourself needing a card.

Shari-Carroll-March-Card-Sketch Shari-Carroll-March-Card-Sketch-detail BG card designer Shari Carroll was the first to put this week’s sketch to use.  Shari notes, “I loved the sketch this month! It gave me a chance to add some layers (my addiction) and use some SPRING colors from Hey Girl! I changed up the design slightly to incorporate the Hanger Banner and instead of running ribbon or twine around the card, I used the little flag Garland.  Love the colors… and I hope you do to!”

Scrapbook designer JE also used this week’s sketch as the starting point for her card.  Jana says, “I love this card sketch by Susan! I thought the Ring Around the Rosies floral paper would be the perfect companion to the doily shape along the top of the sketch and chose colors from the flowers in the paper to create the dovetailed strips. Next, I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut a doily shape, I accented the center of it using a circular sticker from the Knee Highs Element Stickers. I wrapped green grosgrain ribbon around the top and accented the bow with a Knee Highs chipboard button. Finally, I tucked in a wooden flag printed with a sentiment. I can’t wait to send this card out to a special friend!”
