When I started to make my card today I just knew I wanted to use the Sweet Sorbet DSP one more time! Yes, today is the last day of Sale A Bration, but I will continue to use this paper that I love until it runs out. Just to be safe, I got an extra pack.
My post today will be short and sweet, but my card will be l-o-n-g, you see.... Well, let me explain. The sketch challenge for Mojo Monday was my inspiration, and we made a LONG card. My card measures 3.5 x 5.5". I began with my card stock cut at 5.5 x 7, then I scored the long side at 3.5" This size still fits in an A2 envie.
I also wanted to pull out my small banner punch.
Here are a few design tips:
- The long vertical lines in the card sketch needed horizontal elements for balance, so I added the banner.
- The Candy Dots with a pop of black accent it further.
- I used them in threes to form a triangle which also causes the eye to travel across the card.
I can't thank each of you enough who come by to visit each day, and those whose orders help to keep me in business. I'm sending grateful hugs your way today!
