Paper and Ink Sketches 2

 Paper & Ink Sketches 2


Here's the card I created using Sketch #2 with the Better Together Stamp Set and the Neutrals Pack of Designer Series Paper.

I used the Smoky Slate DSP and I made one small change to the Sketch with measurements ... I changed the Designer Series Paper to measure 2 x 5-1/4.

I stamped the image with Black Stazon ink and then cut it out with the Layering Ovals Framelits.


Here's a picture of Sketch #2 that you can print for FREE (link is above).

    Loving this card! I wanted to give a thank you card to the admissions officer at my daughter’s college for making her transition from high school to college so effortless. I think I will use this. It’s simple but exquisite. I will change the sentiment to Thank You and it will be just what I needed! Thank you so much!!

    Simple is better in this regards! I love it – the color is just perfect. That little touch of bling is the crowning touch! The bow you tied was really cool with the two ribbons. I am going to see if you have a video on tying the bow that way. Thanks for an opportunity to win this little kit. This sketch is a keeper!
