Saturday Sketch Challenge 131

Here we are! Another fantastic sketch from your operators at 411. You may notice we are running a little lean this week. Our operators are spending time with their families as I hope you have been able to.

This week's sketch is on the simple side, with the hopes that we will make it easy to play along, during the most busy time of the year.

Here are some potential measurements:

Layer 1: 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 5 1/2" to make your card base
Layer 2: 1 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Layer 3: (maybe a ribbon?) or 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Layer 5: (center white) try measuring the block of wood on your stamp and make your white layer this large.
Layer 4: Make layer four, 1/4" larger on two sides than layer 5

The other shapes off to the side could easily be made with punches, or by cutting out a photograph or stamped image. Use your imagination!

Never played before? Well, it's easy!
  1. Make a card
  2. Post it online somewhere to your blog or other online forum
  3. Post a link to Mr. Linky (Please be sure to link to your post and not just to your blog so we can find your post a few days later). need directions on that? Check out our posts on "how to use mr linky"
We hope you have a ball with this week's sketch! Until then Happy New Year!!!
