Freshly Made Sketches: Sending Love

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Narelle and here’s what I did with it!

  11.18 FMS


I was flipping through my dies looking for something square that would give me an idea.  I didn't find "square" but this mini envelope caught my eye.  I'm still sending so many cards of encouragement, I thought that a card with hearts popping out of envelopes would be just right.  I spent much more time looking for papers - they had to be two-sided and I had to like both sides since they both showed.  That was amazingly hard.  As I was looking through my paper pads, it seems that many companies put dramatically different patterns on the two sides - probably so you might like one and not the other and when you use one side you aren't sad about the other side.  That's my theory!

I just going to do a sentiment strip but I saw that all the busy-ness at the top overwhelmed a small strip so I put together the sentiment that I wanted using a Building Blocks set from Taylored Expressions. 

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Taylored Expressions.

Dies: Taylored Expressions Building Blocks, Fun Stampers Journey Baby Envelope, Simon Says A1 Thin Frames, misc hearts and leaves

  1. Well you picked the perfect papers! I love the colors and mix of patterns. And this card is perfect to send during this time!

  2. Those love filled envelopes are wonderful! Love this Kim, the colors are so pretty!

  3. I love your take on the sketch, Kim! The envelopes work so well with it and couldn't be more appropriate with the sentiment. I am with you about the two sided paper! That tiny frame and the embossing look amazing!

  4. I've always loved your cards Kim and this is no exception. When I saw that you had used envelopes, it reminded me that I have a small envelope die, which has never been used, so my card is somewhat of a case of yours, I hope that's OK!
    Thanks for the continued inspiration!
