Welcome! When you need a batch of cards, all for different occasions and you’re on a time crunch, try my one sketch three designs idea. Pinterest in filled with card sketches. Choose the one you like and you’re on your way. Today, my one sketch three designs cards can be used for birthday, graduation and just because.
I’ve used one stamp set for each of the cards, but all have the same sketch. Yet, you can achieve a different look simply by changing the colors. First up, the very sparkly graduation card. My grandson, Trent, graduated from lower school to upper school this week and I need a special card.
My paper choice was the Broadway Bound Specialty DSP and our gorgeous Gold Glimmer Paper. And why not throw in some gold heat embossing for a real WOW. The Around the Corner stamp has so many fun sentiments and images and was perfect for Trent’s special card. Time to move on to a sweet feminine birthday card.
This time, on the focal mat, I created by own DSP with the stamps from the Periennal Birthday set. Are you beginning to see that one sketch three designs can help you out in your card making? Nothing says girlie more than Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick. Those colors can be found in the Forever Lovely DSP that I used in the background.
Then, last but not least, my just because or thinking of you card. Using new product is so exciting. The star of the show is the Saling Home Bundle. A gorgeous 12-piece cling mount set with 12 coordinating dies. Those will be available June 4, 2019. Need a catalog? Be sure to fill in this contact form and I’ll be in touch to get one right out to you.
Because I used the Come Sail Away DSP, I think it gave the card a masculine look.
I featured my one sketch three designs in my recent Facebook Live. But, I know not everyone is on Facebook so, I’ve filmed a video of this one for you here. And be sure to let me know, in the comments, if you try out my one sketch three designs series.
