It’s the third Saturday of the month so we have a sketch challenge: Crazy4Challenges
This card is fast and easy. You could use this layout for so many themes and put any feature in the oval.
Step 1: Make a base card by scoring an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock at 5.5″ along the long side. Fold over for a book fold and trim to 5.5″ x 7.5″.
Step 2: I first made a pattern of the wave in the sketch:
Then I used this to make a light pencil mark on two of three complimentary colors of cardstock. I chose a rust, olive and dark yellow cardstock, in that order, from top to bottom. Only the two lower colors need to be cut in that wave and then layered onto the top color. Adhere them, as shown in the sketch, to the front of the base.
Step 3: I chose one of Joset’s for Elizabeth Craft Designs die sets called “1618 Monkey” :https://www.elizabethcraftdesigns.com/products/monkey
to put onto the oval in the sketch. The banana die is also in this cute set. Cut and assemble the monkey and cut the banana 4 times.
Step 4: The Oval is the second to the largest in Elizabeth Craft Designs” 1113 – Stitched Ovals”: https://www.elizabethcraftdesigns.com/products/stitched-ovals-1113
Step 5: The sentiment stamped in the lower left corner is from Elizabeth Craft Designs called “Safari Sayings”: https://www.elizabethcraftdesigns.com/collections/joset-designs/products/safari-sayings
