I received so many requests to incorporate a card sketch series both here and on my YouTube Channel. So, here’s our WOW Card Sketch #2.

Just remember, the sketch is to inspire. You can tweak it, add a layer, or you can use as is.  Be sure to post your creation on my WOW NOLA Creations Facebook Page.

Once I had the sketch nailed down, my next decision was a color scheme. I choice colors from the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Because I love rich warm colors, my palette includes Night of Navy, Shaded Spruce, Cherry Cobbler, Gold and a bit of Whisper White.

Dry embossing adds so much to a project. This time, the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder added just the right amount of texture to the Shaded Spruce mat. I think it really made the boughs pop. Next step was to complete the inside of the card.

Having fabulous large greetings, like the one in the Peaceful Boughs set, helps to finish things off.  I stamped it in Night of Navy and added just a strip of the Wrapped in Plaid DSP. I’ve got a video tutorial for you as well. Enjoy!!
