Saturday Sketch Challenge 173

Good Evening Friends!

I'm very excited about tonight's stamping 411 sketch challenge. I have to say, I {{{heart}}} this card! I really had fun making it, and isn't that what it's all about?

The gorgeous Autumn Spice DSP, is so heavy and wonderful, that you can easily use it as the base to your card. To save on paper, I made my card 1/4" smaller, but I got Three card bases from one piece of 12 x 12" DSP. That totally rocks!

Here are the measurements I wrote earlier over on the 411 blog:

Base: 4" x 11(scored and folded in half at 5.5" note** I cut 3 bases from one 12 x 12, cutting my designer paper at 11" then at 4 and 4" I was able to use this card for my stamp club, and all the members had slightly different patterns. I went through 3 packs of designer paper just for the base!
Layer 2: 5 x 3.5 and 3.75" So I cut the 1/4" off first, so I would have the extra strip to follow the sketch.
Layer 3 was all scraps. :D
Layer 4: I stamped some leftover scraps and made a paper banner. I attached it to my card using the tombo multipurpose adhesive (in the green tube).

I hope you have some time to play along with this very CAS sketch this week over on Stamping 411. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

TGIF!

Beautiful job! Love this DP and have a hard time cutting it up (I tend to hoard DP) but you have inspired me to "let go":-) Thanks again for sharing your talent with all of us!
