Welcome to Freebie Friday! If you’re a fan of using sketches in your card designs, you won’t want to miss a single day of our Card Ideas Week.
Beginning on Monday, we’re celebrating our latest special issue, Card Ideas for Paper Crafters. Based on the popularity of last year’s Go-to Sketches, this sequel features 288 cards made from 72 sketches. And this time around all 72 sketches were designed by some of your favorite Paper Crafts designers.
Once again we’re partnering with trends editor Cath Edvalson and the Moxie Fab World blog to bring you five days of sketch-filled fun. Between both sites, we’ll be spotlighting your favorite designers’ cards (and sketches), hosting some fun challenges and giving away some fabulous prizes (including issues)!
We’ve broken up this issue into four sections: shaped cards, square cards, horizontal cards and vertical cards. For each sketch there’s a lead card (which is a direct interpretation) and three additional takes (even flipped, rotated or turned). Today I thought I’d share one of my favorite sketches from the issue:
Fantastic cards, right? Leave a comment telling me why you like working with sketches. I’ll pick three winners to take home a copy of Card Ideas for Paper Crafters, plus one of the three paper collections featured in the cards above! All comments must be received by midnight (MDT) on Sunday, August 21.
P.S. Join us on Monday when we spotlight the talented Lindsay Amrhein!
P.P.S. It’s time to announce the winner from Julie’s School is Cool post!
