Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge | August Blog Hop


Hello! so, I designed this card for the Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge…. but then my blog broke and I missed it! But I didn’t want you to miss this card… so here it is! You can check out the Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge Blog hop HERE!
Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge Friend Card using Eastern Palace from Stampin' Up!

Now the sketch showed 3 squares….. and well, I had to move them around! I’m sure if you have seen my takes on a sketch before you will know that I tend to move things, change shapes and do all sorts of other funny things to sketches! But I love my card!

I received the Layering Squares Framelits just before I made this card… can you tell that I LOVE them! The great thing about using dies to cut squares rather than hand cutting them is that, not only can you ensure that your squares are actually square, but also you can pair them with the matching layer!

I have stuck to a very simply colour scheme, using just Crumb Cake and Early Espresso for this card. But each square was treated very differently.

Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge Friend Card using Eastern Palace from Stampin' Up!The bottom most square is stamped with Crumb Cake ink using the Eastern Palace stamp set, for a fun tone on tone effect. The next square was embossed using the Hexagon 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and the top square holds the sentiment stamped in Early Espresso. Each square also had a hint of a sponged edge also using Crumb Cake ink.

This card is finished with a double bow of Linen Thread, a hint of background stamping, and a trio of Jewel Rhinestones
