Saturday Sketch Challenge #237

Happy New Year everyone! This is our first Saturday Sketch Challenge for 2012. The operators are ready to keep inspiring you to stamp and create throughout this new year. We have sketch challenges, color challenges, tutorials, techniques and so much more planned for you!!!

This week, the sketch is staying on trend with a banner element. Have you noticed how banners are just everywhere in the papercrafting world?

Banners edges can be cut by hand with a scissor (they do not have to be perfect), using a paper trimmer or by using a punch to help notch out that edge.

Let's talk about this week's sketch in more detail:

Base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
Layer #2: 2" x 4 1/2", cut with a banner edge
Layer #3: 3" x 3"
Layer #4: 3 1/8" x 3 1/8"

These are only approximate measurements. If you would like more specific information on an operator's card, just click on their name below the photo of their card to get more information.

  1. Guys I don't know how you do it each week producing these fabulous cards! You all are azmazing! Wonderful sketch again!

  2. Thanks for fixing my mistake! I am not so computer savvy and ended up posting my card three times! Then I couldn't take the extra ones off! So sorry... and THANKS! You ladies rock!

  3. I posted my card twice because I messed up the cropping the first time and could not figure out how to get back to that entry to fix it or remove it:) Great challenges, ladies. I hope to have more time this year to enter more of the SSC411 challenges.
