Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a project I created using the July Regatta kits and the July sketch. You can find a copy of the sketch in The Clique Facebook group and I've provided a copy in this post as well!
I generally scrapbook traditional 12x12 layouts but for this sketch I decided to challenge myself and make a card. With the pool theme that runs in the July kits, I decided to make a card that is an invite to a pool party.
As a card is quite small, I really had to shrink down the scale of the sketch to fit the front of the card and rather than having a photo, I used the Pool Day ephemera as the main focus on the card. I also used the fish ephemera to represent the tall flowers in the sketch.
I then used the same layer papers from the sketch that I put on the front to make pockets on the inside of the card. You will notice I used gold thread to sow around the layers of papers and you can see this on the back sides of the card. I personally like this look because it makes the card feel more homemade however you could easily cover it up with patterned paper.
Finally I used pieces of ephemera as tags to put into each pocket. In my example I showed how you could use the tags to put information for your party on them but if you are not using it as an invite, you could use the tags for any message you would like to send.
I hope you have all enjoyed my take on this months sketch and are inspired to create a project as well. Until next time!
