Lovely You for Sketch Tuesday

Today is a new sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  YoonYoung gave us a pretty simple sketch which means it's not as simple to create a card as it looks!  

My card today features the Lovely You stamp set from the Annual Catalog at Stampin' Up.  I've used this set numerous times for the sentiments - in fact that is why I bought it.  I love the combo of the script and the sans serif fonts.  And the sentiments themselves I find incredibly useful and varied.

Today I finally used the floral images too.  Why did I wait so long?  This was super easy to create.  I lightly drew a line in pencil two inches from the bottom and began stamping my floral images.  I used three colors of ink and to get variation in tone I stamped off some of the images.

Then I cut a panel for the bottom two inches tall.  That covered up the bottom portion of the floral line to give it a sharp edge.  I wanted the two panels to have a little contrast so I ran my floral panel through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder.  This gave just enough contrast and interest between the two panels.  I finished it by using ribbon and tying in a simple knot.

A CAS card that is easy to create in multiples and in any color combo that suits you.  Just pick three colors!

  1. Sometimes the extra simplicity boggles my brain a bit, doesn't it? This is beautiful. Love the texture up top.

  2. Love your design, with texture and great colour combo.

  3. so simple and sweet. Would be nice for a set of notecards. The Tasteful Textiles EF was a great choice and adds interest.
