Kindness Matters 5 Minute Card CS42S

Yikes, I’ve been burning the candle from both ends of late!!  This has, indeed been a very busy week!  Late Tuesday afternoon, realizing I hadn’t made a card for the Creative-Sketches Design Team, I quickly made today’s card!  Featuring new products from the 2011-12 Idea book and catalog, this one came together in 5 Minutes (maybe even less!)

LOL, I’ve been wanting to use the new stamp set Kindness Matters… and today’s sketch challenge was the perfect opportunity to put it to use!

New Products:  Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper and Kindness Matters Stamp Set.

The butterflies from Kindness Matters were stamped in Not Quite Navy Classic Ink, and then punched with the 1” and 1-1/4” circle punches.  The center butterfly is popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional, and all three are trimmed in Not Quite Navy Classic Ink too.

At first the card still looked a little, well… blah… so I added Basic Jewel Pearls to the focal image panel.  Initially, I toyed with putting them on the Beyond The Garden Designer Series Paper, but they became lost in the small printed and somewhat busy floral background.

A strip of Double Scalloped Ribbon Border Punch (DSRB) was layered onto a 1/2” strip of Not Quite Navy Card Stock… but it still looked a little dull, uninteresting and like it was missing something, so I added a layer of narrow grosgrain directly over the DSRB and a “bunny ear” bow which was attached with mini glue dots.CS42S, Sketch Challenge, New PRoduct, Kindness Matters, Beyond the Garden, 5 minute card, Sharon Field, Createdbyu, Blogspot

Here is today’s sketch for the Creative Sketches Design Team, why not play along with us… create a project, card, or even an ATC using this sketch and then upload the URL of your creation to the Design Team Blog!

See you tomorrow with more cards from this week’s classes!  Everyone has had such a good time…. be sure to check out my upcoming Classes and Events, and register early to reserve your spot!

Hugs,

Hi Sharon! I like this card and can't believe it only took you 5 minutes. Wow! I love the butterflies punched out and the ribbon detail at the bottom especially. I find cas is harder to achieve but you make it look so easy. : )
