Sketch Inspired Card: A Clean and Simple Thank You Card

For today’s post, I decide to use a sketch inspired card by Freshly Made Sketches. This particular sketch was created by their Clean Team. This is the first time participating in this challenge, and I’m excited to play along.

With having so much of my focus on birthdays lately, I wanted to switch gears and create a thank you card. Initially I created this card without the enamel dots in the corners, but it just didn’t look right. Do you know that feeling when you feel like something is missing? Perhaps it was just too much open space in those corners.

The base for this card is Sahara Sand Cardstock. I then added a layer of Marina Mist. On the Whisper White cardstock I used a stamp from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set to create the dotted background in Sahara Sand. I then stamped over that using the All Things Thanks Stamp Set in Marina Mist.

I popped that layer up using Stampin’ Dimensionals on top of the Marina Mist layer. Again, because the corners of that layer looked empty, I created flowers from the Swirly Bird set. The flowers are stamped in Flirty Flamingo, while the leaves are stamped in Emerald Envy. I cut the flower elements out with the Big Shot with the coordinating Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies.

For finishing touches, I added Rhinstone Basic Jewels for the middle of the flowers and Marina Mist enamel dots to the corners of the card.

I hope you enjoyed todays card!

  1. Welcome to our challenge Jodi! I”m a sucker for a few splatters on my cards so you can be sure that I love this card you’ve made. The splatters are the perfect background for the big sentiment and I love that you added a couple of wee flowers in the corners. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches and I hope you’ll join us again!

  2. Fabulous card! That big sentiment looks perfect with the splatters behind it! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
