Thinking Of You With a Sketch

Hi Everybody!

Are you digging the PBD blog as much as I am?!?  It’s like a one stop shop for blog surfing.  You get tutorials, sketches, challenges, and a messagboard all in one place!  Speaking of sketches, I have one for you today as my post.  I’ve only used sketches a couple of times, so I hope you all like how my card turned out :o

First, here’s the sketch I used:

And here is the card I made:

*Pink By Design sentiment = Scripted Year set

*Martha Steward Score board = card base

*patterned paper = Theresa Collins

*border punches (circle and scalloped) = Fiskars

*black bling, ribbon and card base all from my stash

This is actually a Cricut-less card (gasp!).  I used a shape cutting method from Creative Memories for the circles.

It’s a gatefold card that opens up and down instead of left to right.  I used my Martha Stewart scoreboard for the measurements.  Did you know that all the measurements are right inside the lid??

I hope you liked how my card turned out, and that you will be inspired to try a sketch and/or gatefold card!  Make sure you come back tomorrow for some more amazing inspiration from the PBD Design team :o

    I’m digging the blog! And I’m digging the card too! I love the combination of black and white and red. I am digging that it is a gatefold card. I too have the Martha Stewart score board. I think I am going to try the gatefold card myself. Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. Oh wow, haha. I really don’t think of things on my own; I always have to see it. Thanks for the inspiration to make a gatefold card that opens that way! It opens the doors for different designs too. Thanks for sharing!
