Ink. Stamp. Share. March Monthly Blog Hop Sketch Challenge

It's time to hop along with the Ink. Stamp. Share. March Monthly Blog Hop with a sketch challenge. You will be visiting with our talented Design Team Members as they share their ideas and projects based on the sketch design below to help inspire you. 

I love participating in Sketch Challenges as it gives me a road map to help me design my card. For this challenge, I chose to use products from the Pansy Petals Suite to create a Spring themed Birthday card. This layout really fits with my style of clean and simple and I love how the pansy elements fit with the sketch to create this pretty card design. The sentiment label was die cut with the Tasteful Labels Dies, which is a wonderful staple for classically elegant designs.

This pretty clean and simple card design showcases the beautiful Pansy Petals Suite in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I used a piece of the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper to create the card front. Tip: to create the 3 panels, first cut a piece of the designer series paper to measure 5" x 4", then measuring along the 5" side, cut 1" strips from each end, leaving a 3" piece in the middle. Then it is simple to line up the pieces of the designer series paper on the front of the card base and adhere them, making sure the edges line up straight. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment with Gold embossing powder and adhered it to the card front towards the right side of the card. I die cut one of the Pale Papaya small pansies from the designer series paper using the Pansy Dies and adhered it to the bottom left corner of the sentiment label. 
To create the leaves, I die cut 4 small leaves from Soft Sea Foam cardstock and sponged them with Soft Sea Foam Classic ink using a Sponge Dauber. I added two of the leaves underneath the pansy and added the other two leaves at the top right corner of the sentiment label. To embellish the card, I added White Glittered Organdy Ribbon underneath the sentiment label on top of the leaves at the top right and bottom left corners. To complete the card design, I added two small Brushed Gold Dots from the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots.
