Several weeks ago I participated in a card sketch challenge using the sketch below.  If you’re having trouble coming up with an idea for a card, a sketch is a good way to go,  You can change it up a bit as you can see I did on mine.  I added a mat to the two top layers, changed the direction of the card and added an oval instead of a circle.  This was my first time participating in a card sketch and I have to say, it was fun!

Although the dimensions are on the card sketch, I’ll include mine to reflect the changes I made.



Card Base:  Basic Black:  11″ x 4-1/4″  scored at 5-1/4″

2nd Layer:  Lemon Lime Twist  5-1/4″ x 4″

3rd Layer:  Very Vanilla 5″ x 3-3/4″

4th & 5th Layers:  Basic Black:  3-3/4″ x 1-3/4″      Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper:  1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″

Scrap of Basic Black for Scalloped Oval & Very Vanilla for Oval with sentiment



  • Run the Very Vanilla cardstock through the Big Shot using the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  Although this is a 3D Dynamic Embossing folder, I personally don’t spritz it with water, I just run it through the Big Shot.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Memento Ink and cut it out with the Layering Ovals Framelits.  The Scalloped Oval is from this same set.
  • Finish the card by adding Glitter Enamel Dots.
