After making 10 cards earlier today, I decided to find another sketch in my pile of Deconstructed Sketches that I have printed off and selected Sketch #48. I altered it a tad to make it work with the papers I was using and I really like the way they turned out.
*NOTE: The two cards above the sketch printout were made using two of the 2" strips I had leftover. To make this set of 10 cards, I ended up using every sheet in the MME paper pad My Girl that I was using. I have some 2" strips left and some pieces I am punching out that I may use on the next set of cards. I'll figure that out after posting this.
This was when I started, I made two cards to see if I liked how they looked before proceeding on with making others.
card base: 8 1/2" x 11" scored at 4 1/4"
solid layer 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
pattern layer 4" x 5 1/4"
solid/pattern .. I cut a piece 3 1/8" wide and longer than 4 1/2".. after trimming the banner ends, I cut it to 4 1/2" long, adhered it to the black layer and then cut the banner ends on the black piece.
on the cards with the 2" wide banner, I cut the piece 2 1/8" wide and did the same as the banner above.
this will be determined by your sentiment. The sentiment I used is one I bought at Michael's. I cut the white piece 1" x 3 1/2" and the black layer 1 1/8" x 3 5/8"
Here's the sketch I used: DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH #48
card stock: black, white
pattern: MME My Girl
stamps: Craft Smart "I LOVE YOU" from Michael's
ink: Hero Art black
accessories: Scor-Pal, Large Circle Punch and Scissors
thanks for looking ~
have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
