Twisted Card Sketches D02

Twisted Sketches Card --"friend"

I’ve been blessed to be part of the Twisted Sketches Cards Design Team for another term.  We will miss those ladies who have moved on but I’m also excited to be working with some new designers and being inspired by their work.  The twist for this one is “friend” and you can find the sketch at  There’s a new one every Saturday so bookmark it!

I started with a card base made from a DCWV Pastels and Brights Cardmaking Stack full page.  (This is big for me but I like it for this one!)  Top that with a piece of patterned paper from the Prima Breathe Paper Collection trimmed to 5×8 inches.  The flat orange lace is a scrap.  The circle is a Daisy chipboard coaster from Martha Stewart.  The sentiment is from the Fiskars Clear Stamps–Friends set, stamped onto Ivory Recollections Cardstock in Debbie Mumm Baby Blue chalk ink from the Nursery Rhyme set.  This was torn to make a deckle edge and inked along the edge.  (Think this may be becoming a signature technique for me right now!)  Add an American Craft flower in melon topped with a cute little blue button from Stampin’ Up.  Voila’ !!

This sketch would work great in standard card size and would easily convert to a square card, if you like to do those.  I considered using a circle punch or one of those whopper blossoms in place of the coaster.  Ribbon or ruffled lace or a punched eyelet edge rather than the flat lace.  Lots of little tweaks to try.  Hope you’ll share yours with us and link it up at the blog!!

Happy Crafting!!!     Paula

    Your card is beautiful! Love the pop of white against the bold, dark colors. I’m so excited and inspired to be working with you on the design team this term. Can’t wait to see what you come up with! 🙂
