Hello and thank you for visiting!
Today's card is inspired by The Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #477, a super fun 4x4 card. I love 4x4 cards because they're so neat and easy to create in multiples. This sketch was unique because of the diagonal line through it. Please click on my card to go directly to the Freshly Made Sketches blog for this week. As well you can click on the Freshly Made Sketches image to visit their blog. Great inspiration awaits!
Here's the card details:
8 x 8 Sahara Sand card stock folded at 4 inches
4 inch piece of Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper, (dsp)
2 1/2 x 2 inch piece of Basic White card stock stamped with the lamb from Springtime Joy stamp set. I coloured the Lamb with Stampin' Blends Markers in Crumb Cake light and dark, Flirty Flamingo light and dark & Granny Apple Green light and dark.
2 x 3/4 inch piece of Basic White card stock stamped with the greeting "Welcome Spring" using Flirty Flamingo ink
Two 6 1/2 inch pieces of Scalloped Lace Trim
* First I glued the ribbon to the dsp. I suggested longer pieces so that it is easier to line up the edge precisely and then snip off the remaining ribbon. I drew a diagonal line of Multipurpose Liquid Glue from corner to corner on the dsp, and then laid the seam edges together. This left the scalloped edges unglued to add a bit of dimension to the card.
* Colour the lamb and attach the stamped greeting to the backside of the lamb image with Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that the two pieces measure 2 1/2 inches wide. You then have a 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 square to attach to the 4 inch piece of dsp with Stampin' Dimensionals.
* Glue the dsp to the folded Sahara Sand card stock and smile at your creation :)
Enjoy and have a Super Day!
