Freshly Made Sketches to the Rescue

We were up very early this morning getting my youngest and my husband ready for an all-day lacrosse tournament.  At 6 a.m., my hubby asked whether I had made the two bar mitzvah cards that he needed.  Excuse me? I think I would have remembered him asking that as I have no stamps for it and no idea what to do!  I quickly searched on bar mitzvah, realized that the cards really could be any style, downloaded a free image - and then, most importantly, found a sketch challenge that made my job easier.  Freshly Made Sketches to the rescue!!

Bar Mitzvah


I thought the sketch was perfect.  Since I kept everything black and white, the card reflects the seriousness of the event, yet the cute little flags give it some fun - particularly since these are 13-year old boys.


  • Stamps: none - it's a free digi that I just randomly found online
  • Paper: Black, white, Bazzill Basics Patterned Paper Licorice
  • Ink: none
  • Accessories: Papertrey Sending You die and Linen Impression Plate, Divine Twine Black Licorice

  4. Your card caught my eye, as I am often making Bar or Bat Mitzvah cards! I wanted to tell you that you did a really great job, and that was before I learned that you had NO notice at all.

  13. A striking card with this sketch! Love the black and white patterns you chose for the label and the single strand of baker's twine. Makes your focal point Star of David really shine!
