Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #24

Posted on

Hello everyone! So here we are at Wednesday, almost there! The weather has been much nicer around here lately. It has been in the 40’s and I think it’s supposed to go up to the 50’s over the weekend. I’m making a list of things that I want to do when it gets warmer outside. Does it show that I can’t wait for the spring?!?!

If it’s Wednesday that means it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge. This week we have a simple sketch…


I wanted to use some new products from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration promotion that starts January 22, 2013. I also haven’t tried the Creped Filter Paper that I got from the 2013 Spring Catalog so I incorporated it into this card. The base of my card is Midnight Muse Card Stock. The background is a piece of Creped Filter Paper. I used my Glue Stick to adhere it to the card base. For the strip of Paper I used a piece from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack. The flags are Soft Suede, the bottom one has some Metallic 3/16″ Brads on it. I used the Feeling Sentimental Stamp Set** for the image and greeting. I stamped both of them in Midnight Muse and used the 2 1/2″ Circle punch to punch out the Penny Farthing. The large button is one of the Silver Basic Designer Buttons and I threaded some Whisper White Bakers Twine through the holes and left the ends long before adhering it to the card with some Mini Glue Dots. This card would be great for a masculine birthday card and I really like the texture that the Creped Filter Paper gives the background. I hope you enjoyed my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s sketch challenge. Head on over to the blog and see what the other designers have come up with and post a card of your own! Thanks, as always for taking some time to stop by and see what I’m up to. I hope that you all have a wonderful day!

    I like the crepe background idea! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Not only did you nail the sketch, but you used the creped filter paper in a new and interesting way. Fabulous!

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card!!! The crepe paper gives it such a cool look. This is one of my favorite SAB sets too.

  4. I just love this–thanks so much!

  5. What a great masculine card. I love how you can see the blue shade through the filter paper and the way you have used the twine. I can never think any further than using a knot on a button on a masculine card so you have given me a new idea! Thank you!

    • Thank you Jean! I really like the way the Creped Filter Paper shows the color too! The twine sort of just happened, glad it worked out! Have a great day! πŸ™‚
