One Sketch, Three Different Cards!

Hi there, I am super excited with today’s cards that I will be sharing with you how to change your sketches for card making. In this post I am sharing the same card however each one is a step up from the previous one. I know you will enjoy seeing the progression on these cards. 

As I have been saying lately, I love using sketches to come up with ideas for my card making projects. It seriously helps me a ton when trying to get into my creative zone! If you want to read more about my process in using sketches make sure you read this post!

And for this post I wanted to share one simple sketch (which you know I LOVE!) and then pair it with using the same supplies and then show you how you can change them a little bit! This process is what brings my creative mojo back every single time!! so lets get started!

The Sketch 

The sketch I am using today is not a new one, in fact I shared it a few weeks ago with my Thank you cards!

sketches to play

You will see that I modified this sketch with every card that I made, but also I used the same elements on all cards so these cards look like a set. 

Please note that on this sketch, I added a focal point on the white rectangle of  this sketch. For two of the cards this is a bouquet of flowers and for one it is the coordinating designer series paper. So you can see how by changing elements on the focal point you come up with cards that look different, though you are using the same sketch and the same element. 

Additionally you will see that the first card is simple, while in the second card I incorporated a fun fold. The last card, though it looks the simplest of the three is actually a pop-up card! So make sure you watch the video tutorial to see this card in action. 

The Color Combination 

As usual I decided the use the color combination from the designer series paper which is honestly is the easiest way to come up with color combinations. 

Next you will see each the cars with some of the details and more information about what changed on the sketch for each of the cards that are shown on this post. 

Handmade card # 1

For this fist card, I mainly modify the size of the rectangles, making the focal point smaller than the sketch. 

As mentioned before the bouquet of flowers are the main focal point, and I added designer series paper on the background. 

For the flowers, I colored them using alcohol markers  – stampin’ blends following the same color combination as the the designer series paper. After coloring the flowers, I cut out this image using scissors. 

And to embellish this card I added a bow to the base of the bouquet. 


Handmade Card # 2

For this second card, I incorporated a fun fold, which as you can see it is an easy one. Same as with the last card I made a bouquet of flowers for the main focal point. I used the same designer series paper and colored the flowers exactly the same way as the previous one. 

So when you are using sketches see how you can incorporate to a fun fold, you will see that the card looks totally different just by doing that.  

To learn how to make this fun fold make sure you watch the video tutorial on this post. 

Handmade card # 3

For this last card, you can see that the card front follows best the sketch, not many changes other than adding a bow. However, the inside of this card is the one that would add the WOW factor as it is a pop up card!

This pop up card is an easy one to make! and you can see I added the same bouquet of flowers as the pop up element. 

You can see how to construct this pop up card on the video tutorial below. I promise you will want to make a lot of this type of cards, there are not fancy dies involved, you just need scissors and that is it!  

The Video Tutorial 

As mentioned before, below is the video tutorial where I will share with you how to color the flowers using alcohol markers, as well as how to make the fun fold and the pop up card! I promise you, both of these cards are extremely easy and you will be able to make them without any problem.
