One Card Sketch: Two Cards

One Card Sketch: Two Cards

I wanted to make thank you cards for two friends and thought it would be fun to base both cards off one card sketch. I find I am more efficient when I make two cards at a time that look the same or similar.

Here are two cards I made for the two friends. The layout is not exactly the same, but they have similarities to one another.

I used beautiful Japanese paper from Paper Source, a Fiskars edge punch, gold paper, gold embossing powder, stamps, a gold pen to write “thank you” and “thanks,” a crystal gem, plus a label punch and a decorative square punch to create these cards.

Thanks for reading my blog!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
