Card Sketch #SC802

Mystery Stamping Hour was a hit last night!  Thank you to all who played.  If you couldn't be there in the Facebook group last night, I'm having another next Friday May 29 at 8 PM ET.  It's free and you'll love it!  

Today's card has a mix of old and new elements.  It's incredibly fun to rummage through stamping supplies that haven't seen love in a long while.  It's like looking at a box of photos taken a decade or more ago and being delightfully surprised at the memories you'd temporarily forgotten.

My card began with this week's Splitcoaststampers card sketch.  The panels labelled 3 are layered over the panel labelled 2.  The beauty of this sketch is that it can be kept clean and simple with a strong background, or it can be dressed up with distressed and sponged layers and lots of embellishments.

I stuck to mostly simple.  Showing off the retiring Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper (DSP) was my objective.  The Sparkle Glimmer Paper pairs beautifully with the Blackberry Bliss in the DSP.  My sentiment, die-cut and punched butterflies, and pearls are from my retired stash but I list current product below that will allow you to still make this.

Here's the card recipe, so you can make it, too:

Directions for cutting the DSP diagonally:
  • cut paper to 4-1/4" x 4"
  • measure 1" down the right long (4-1/4") side and mark with a pencil
  • measure 2-1/2" down the left long (4-1/4") side and mark with a pencil
  • Place paper in trimmer with both pencil marks aligned in the trimmer track (the paper will be diagonal in your trimmer).
  • Cut the paper.
