Saturday Sketch Challenge 177

Good Evening!

It's time for another clean and simple sketch challenge from your stamping 411 Operators!

This week is super uber simple and there's a bunch of ways you can assemble a quick and simple card, that will look wonderful!

This week, Tiffany is on top, so I'm going to try and guess at her measurements, but feel free to go to any of the operator blogs to find out how they created their cards! They are certainly GORGEOUS this week!

Here are some measurements for you to try:

Base Layer: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: is ribbon, but if you were using paper you could try 1 1/4" x 5 1/2" strip
Layer 3: 2 3/4" x 3"
Layer 4: 2 5/8" x 2 7/8" TIP** (rather than looking at the measurement, it's an 1/8th of an inch smaller on two sides than layer 3).
Layer 5: 2 1/2" x 2 3/4"

Does the thought of cutting your card stock using measurements baffle you? Well, you can check out the most awesome post on how to read a ruler written by the very lovely and talented Lee Conrey, by clicking here.

As with EVERY week, if you need to change it up, do so! You just want to use this sketch as a jumping off point for your design then let your imagination do the rest!

Without further delay, here are your operator cards for this week.
