I am cardmaking this evening and decided to create a card using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #510. I pulled out my Backyard Bliss Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet which is still available while stocks last.
And I thought the woodgrain paper would be great as the side parts of the sketch. So I cut two strips off at 5.5 inches (the size of the White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack). I wanted the edges to stand out so I inked the edge of the "planks of wood" with Toffee Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad. So I ran the paper over the stamp pad.
Then I grabbed the floral paper and to make sure I got the right width I laid the two planks onto my Aluminum Cut Rail Paper Trimmer at the 4.25 inch line and laid the floral paper next to it and cut it at the right space. Then I also inked the edges of that paper too.
I pulled out my Happy Birthday Shaker Window Thin Cuts to cut with the green grass looking pattern paper. I put it against the floral paper and it looked too lost...
Luckily when I created my last card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #509 with Colour Dare #533 Fancy Five I had cut an extra Linen circle with Circle Shaker Window Thin Cuts.
It fit exactly inside the circle and had the Happy Birthday banner part stand out much more.
To finish it off I used the stickers from the sticker sheet.
The top 3 banner bits. 2 of them in the lighter colours I also inked the edges of them.
I added the pot plant, then tucked the tomatoes behind and the strawberry on top and thought I needed to add a top part like in the sketch and to balance out the red. I pulled off the red flowers and added them at the top to finish the elements from the sketch.
