Card Sketch Weekly # 280 

This weeks card sketch I designed my sample first,

then the sketch was designed from my sample.


This is not how I do the sketches normally.

I  99% of the time design the sketch first , then design my sample around the template.

Not this week’s sketch  though , that’s because I knew

I really wanted to use the

Cheerful Daisies Bundle #161297

and the Countryside Corners Dies # 161471

Both  brand new in the  new 2023/24 Annual catalog that starts tomorrow.

Can you believe it’s already tomorrow – Yes  tomorrow – YAY! 

Plus I  had  to use the brand

new Lemon Lolly cardstock #161720

Oh how I love this  new core color to our  fabulous  selection of 50 colors. 

I also embossed the  Basic White  4″ x 5-1/4″ layer /background with the

Basics 3D Embossing Folder # 161598

from the Online Exclusives HERE .

You can see that background  better in this up close photo.

The birthday greeting is also in this

Cheerful Daisies stamp set  # 161290

I  first tried the polka dot embossing folder which is one of the

three different design  folders in this Basics 3D Embossing Folder collection 

  • Flowers
  • Hobnail-Glass Dots 
  • Crosshatch Designs 

I thought the  crosshatch design looked much more delicate 

which was the look I was trying to achieve .

I love how soft this card looks.


This Cheerful Daises Bundle # 161297

  I’m sure will be very popular from the new catalog . 

Those Lemon Lolly  colored gems are from the new

Adhesive- Backed Solid Gems # 161300 .

Thanks for peeking in today .

See you tomorrow on the new  2023/24  Annual catalog launch day!  .

Enjoy your day stampers!

Until Later… Happy Stamping
