It is Sunday Sketch time, Alison Solven from Canada here today.
Each Sunday Patsy Waggoner from the US (my border buddy) and I take turns creating a card using one of our card sketches. Sketches can help get your creative juices flowing. I find that when I'm stuck and seem to have lost my stampin' mojo a sketch can give me the spark I need. They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.
Today's card features products from the Sale-a-bration brochure. You can earn this bundle FREE with a purchase of $100 US/$120 CDN during January & February 2021. The bundle includes the Berry Blessings Stamp Set (13 photopolymer 2 step stamping images) and the fabulous Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper (12 sheets; 2 each of 6 double-sided designs in 12" x 12").
I love the paper and it coordinates with so many colours making the options for your card making endless!
Added bonus is that the bundle coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle from the January - June 2021 Mini Catalogue!
You can create a card using the sketch exactly as it's presented or switch it up - it's meant to be a starting point for your creativity. For example, today I switched my orientation from Portrait to Landscape.
All Stampin’ Up!® products were used to create today's card.
