Hello everyone! It's Heather Doolittle here with my last project using the July Regatta kit! This kit is so diverse and can be used for many different projects-- cards included! I thought there were some great masculine colors in the kit this month, so I made a general masculine birthday card with this month's kit AND sketch!
Have you ever made a card using a layout sketch? It's totally possible! To make my card, I began by flipping the sketch upside down. I liked the idea of having the heavier (design-wise) patterned paper on the top with some vellum stars floating down kind of like the little flower sprigs are on the sketch. You'll have to look really close to see the vellum stars on my card, but they're there!
I placed my sentiment in the area where the title is on the sketch. This was the perfect placement! I added some little embellishing around the sentiment strips so the words stood out a bit more!
Lastly, I still kept the scattered stars on my card too... just like the sketch! I used the puffy stars and dots included in the kit. I wasn't sure if I'd use the puffy pool floatie shapes, but I've definitely put those stars and dots that were included on that same sheet to good use!
I hope you've been inspired to try using a layout sketch to make a card! It's super fun! If you do use this sketch, be sure to share it in The Clique on Facebook!
