Fab Friday 109 | Sketch Challenge

This was another fun challenge for me.  It's a card sketch I've never used before and I wasn't sure how I felt about it or how it would turn out.  Let's see what you think...

Card Measurements and Instructions:

Soft Suede (#115318) 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/2"
Always Artichoke #105119 cut at 4 3/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Series Paper - retired, select a layer of your choice, cut at 2 1/4" x 4 1/2"
Very Vanilla #101650, cut at 4 1/4" x 2" and scrap for sentiment 2 1/2" x 1/2"

Stamp set: Lovely As a Tree #127793
Teeny Tiny Wishes #127802
Ink: Early Expresso Classic Stampin' Pad #126974
Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' Pad #126972

5/8" Burlap Ribbon #141487, approximately 3 3/4"

Paper Snips #103579
SNAIL Adhesive #104332

This was such a simple card to make and assemble and so perfect for Father's Day.  

Stamp the large tree grouping image form Lovely As a Tree stamp set using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto the Very Vanilla card stock. Using the Blender Pen, pick up ink from the Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' Pad and dap the ink on the branches to make the leaves.  Using SNAIL Adhesive adhere the stamped layer to the DSP and then to the Always Artichoke layer.  Next, add the Burlap Ribbon and finally stamp and adhere the sentiment strip.

Thanks for stopping by,
