I Sketch 3 Ways

Published in How To

Sketches are generally created by using just three very important but basic products; matting paper, designer paper and embellishments.
The matting element is generally cardstock and is used to frame the design. Designer papers are available in many patterns, colours and textures, and these normally correspond to the theme, person or occasion that the card is being created for. Embellishments can be as varied as you want them to be, but are generally based on the theme of your designer paper and will co-ordinate to bring the whole card together and create the completed look.


Versatile time savers
The most time-consuming element of cardmaking is deciding where to put all of your components. Sketch layouts can be used again and again saving you the headache of what to do next and reproducing an old-favourite design can save you a lot of time when you need to get a card made quickly.
Varying the colours, embellishments and orientation of a sketch will produce different results using the same style of layout. This adds to the versatility of using sketches for making cards and don't forget that Scrapbooking layouts can be downsized for cardmaking too.

Where to buy
All of the products used here are available from The Art of Craft Ltd
