Ever wondered how to use an Sketch for Card making? if so, keep reading as I will be sharing with you how to use sketches!
But before I start, let me tell you that this post is part of a blog hop, where fellow demonstrators will be sharing card ideas using the same sketch. So you will get lots and lots of ideas of how everyone used the sketch for their card!
So let’s get started!
Benefits of an Sketch in Card Making
If you ever struggled getting creative or coming up with card ideas, I would suggest you use sketches.
Sketches are the easiest way to come up with card ideas, as you just need to pick a sketch and a set of products to start playing with them. It honestly seems like the creative process flows so much easier. I use sketches every time I need to design for my card classes or my Facebook lives mainly because it helps me design my cards so much faster.
Once you start using sketches you will realize that these are like maps that give you a visual idea of how the elements will work in the card. You would just need to substitute each of this elements with your crafting supplies. Which is what I will be talking next..
How to Use an Sketch for Card Making?
If you have never use an sketch, here are a few things to consider:
- Select an easy sketch, the less elements the better it is, as it gives you more possibilities
- Pick a few products you want to use, so you don’t overwhelm yourself
- Decide if you want to use the sketch as is or if you want change things around
- Start substituting the elements with the products you selected so you get the idea of how your card is turning out
- Do not put any adhesive in the elements, just position them and change them around until you are happy with the visual of your card
- Have fun!
The Sketch for this challenge
Below you can see the sketch that was given for this challenge.
You can see is simple, and it does not have too many elements, so this sketch is perfect to use as it is easy to change things around or modify as you need for the products you want to use. In my case you will see I change the shape of the elements but still follow the essence of the sketch.
Thank You Card
Since this week I was working on Thank you cards for the sweet ladies supporting my business by placing orders during this month, I decided to use this sketch for one of their cards. I paired it with the products from the You’re a Peach suite, as this suite is one of my favorites and I have been playing with it a lot lately!
If you want to see more examples with the You’re a Peach Suite, you can read this post where I shared three more cards!
But I digressed…
Below you can see my interpretation of the sketch!
As you can see I changed the shape of the elements. Instead of using squares, I used circles, and honestly, you could changed to any shape you want. Also for my sentiment I decided to use a banner rather than stamping directly on the white cardstock, and I added a bow with the twine rather than just wrapping it around..
See how simple are my changes? Try it and see how easy this is 🙂
For this card I decided to use the colors featured in the You’re a Peach Suite.
I love how all the colors compliment each other and I think this is why I have been using this paper pack so much.. I just love the color combinations you can get out of this paper pack.
