Folded Tree Sketch Card
I don’t use sketches all that often, but when I do, I wonder why I don’t use them more! They are really helpful for unique layout ideas (I tend to create a lot of “matted rectangles centered on the card base” kinds of cards) and for ideas on ways to use some of the patterned paper I have accumulated. The above layout is based on the following sketch:
Here is another sample with different paper.
This card also features a folded Christmas Tree that was made with a 6 inch semicircle. You can see how to make one HERE.
Below are a few links to some sites with card sketches in case you are looking for some layout ideas.
The patterned paper used for these cards was all from American Crafts (#320370 Holly Berries, #341310 Music, and #341345). I also used Core’dinations “Kraft Small White Dot” card stock along with Bazzill “Butter Mints” for the panels behind the trees and “Pomagranate Splash” for the card bases. I cut the stars with a Fiskars Thick Punch and added the speckles with a Tim Holtz marker spritzer tool and a Walnut Stain distress marker.
Thanks for checking out my card project!
