Time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! The fun sketch this week is brought to us by Tui. Due to the holiday schedule…you will have two weeks to complete your card and enter the challenge! Hopefully you will all get some new crafty goodies for Christmas and will have new toys to play with. On a side note…one sure fire way to make sure you get crafty goodness…..is to get it yourself and put it under the tree! Here is a look at the original sketch-
I stayed true to the sketch…..though I was really torn on just what design I wanted to use! I instantly thought of using a layered snowflake…but obviously so did a lot of others! Then I toyed with the idea of a cupcake…which lead me down the birthday path. I ended up using a ton of supplies that had never seen the light of day for a fun boy themed birthday card! I never seem to have boy birthday cards when I need them…so I figured the gears and bolts theme would be a great card to have in the stash!
I added more fun colors to the inside for a cheerful card!
I used a wide variety of supplies from the stash for this one:
Grey Cardstock-Making Memories
White Cardstock-Close To My Heart
Boys Only Paper Pad-Doodlebug Design
Birthday Stamps-Close To My Heart (D1475 Card Chatter-Birthday)
Gear Punch-Stampin Up
Grey Ribbon-Stampin Up
Screw Brads-Karen Foster
Tuxedo Black Ink-Memento
Circle Stax Dies-MFT
I have entered my card in the following challenges:
