The first is for Paper Smooches challenge. For this one I stretched my card out a bit from a standard card by using a flip-it card from Sizzix. The center of that flip-it card is a square, and that is where I used the sketch to decorate the focal point of the square.
I love how clean this card came out, with all that white space.
My second card was inspired by Reverse Confetti's sketch challenge.
For this one I used two different stamp sets, two different die sets and three different pattern papers to create my design.
I stretched my tag out by cutting it where the rectangle of pattern paper would hide the gap. I love the look of the tag, as it provides a different design element that also includes a ribbon tie. I thought about sequins, but in the end went with the arrow clip for embellishment.
This one would work for a masculine card, even with the ribbon.
Hope you found some time to create today, and if not, there is always tomorrow!
