Fall-to Layout #41

This week's sketch was inspired by this adorable card by Savitri. I decided to make it have a vertical orientation instead of horizontal. The sketch works quite well if you have a small bit of patterned paper you want to use up, or a small stamped image. Some dimensional info based on my card:

  • The brown rectangle piece is 2.5x3-3/8.
  • The small white piece is 1.5x 3-1/8.
  • The items are approximately 1 inch each.

Here's my sketch:

And here's my card for the sketch:

Supplies: Stamps: Coffee Break (gel-a-tins), Birthday Basics (PTI) Ink: Palette Noir Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides Accessories, etc.: pop dots, aqua twill
