This week's Card Patterns sketch can be found HERE and CP is pleased to let you know that we are being sponsored by Created with Paper who is offering a SUPER prize that you can check out by following the link to the Card Patterns blog I listed above referencing the sketch. At Created with Paper you can find all kinds of items that you would use in paper crafting, so go check them out!!
Above is my take on the sketch. I must say that this is the most loosely I have used a CP sketch so far. Usually my "take" is very similar to the sketch. This time I kept the element of having 3 strips of paper on the bottom, but I overlapped them and extended them the entire width of the card.
I had fun using my SU! Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die. It's on the 2nd time I've pulled it out to use it and I need to do so more often. The Walk in the Park DSP that's in the current Occasions Mini Catalog from SU! is just such pretty paper!!! I love the combo of Baja Breeze, Cameo Coral, Basic Gray and Whisper White. Don't you?!?!?
I made the scalloped circle the "old fashioned" way. I used my Circle ScissorPlus and Glass Cutting mat that SU! sells to cut two circles - one smaller in Whisper White and one larger in Cameo Coral. Next, I took off the guard on my slit punch (from SU!) and punched around the edges creating scallops on my circle. The bulk of the DSP is from the Walk in the Park DSP pack as I mentioned above, but the Baja Breeze DSP making up the butterfly is actually from the Urban Garden DSP pack.
Have a lovely weekend!!!
