Global Design Project 178 – Sketch Challenge

I’m trying something new on Sundays – participating in the Global Design Project. There are many awesome sketch and color challenges available to help spark your creativity. As I’m blogging everyday – I’m going to start participating in these. This is my first time actually submitting my card into the mix. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Here is the Global Design Project 178 Sketch Challenge.

Start with a So Saffron cs card base. Glue a panel of Garden Impressions 6 x 6 DSP to the card front. Then Emboss a So Saffron panel with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This is my favorite embossing folder. I love the texture it adds to the cardstock. Then glue the embossed So Saffron panel to the DSP layer.

First cut a flourish out of Vellum cs with the Flourish Thinlits. Cut out a Night of Navy scalloped circle layer with the Layering Circle framelits (2 1/2″). Cut out a stitched circle in Whisper White with the Stitched Shapes framelits (2 3/8″). Cut out a doily from a scrap of Garden Impressions DSP with the Doily Builder thinlits.

Stamp the sentiment from the Healing Hugs stamp set in Night of Navy on Whisper White cs. Cut it out with the Rectangle Stitched framelits (2 7/8″ x 7/8″).

To build the sentiment glue the Whisper White stitched circle to the Night of Navy scalloped circle. Glue the Garden Impressions DSP doily to the center of the Whisper White cs center. Then glue them over the Vellum cs flourish in the bottom right corner. Layer the sentiment rectangle across the middle of the DSP doily and attached it with Stampin Dimensionals. To finish the card front add 3 Clear Epoxy Droplets to the sentiment rectangle.

Don’t forget to add a piece of Whisper White cs inside your card to write your message.

I also like to add a strip of DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through the card.

I hope you enjoyed my first Global Design Project – the 178 Sketch Challenge card. You can check out this challenge and the other participating entries here.
