Card Sketch #152 – Zoo Babies


Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 152 Submission by Pam Staples.  #pamstaples #sunnygirlscraps #stampinup #zoobabiesI love this weeks sketch because of the simplicity that it allows.  The design card sketch really opens up lots of options and I know you'll have fun creating cards with this sketch.  Have I mentioned recently how much I love sketches?  In fact, I often start with an idea and create a sketch before I complete the card to make certain the idea I have in my head actually works as I've pictured it in my mind.

So, the card front starts with Basic Black layered with Whisper White and stamped using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set (I MUST have stamp set!) with Memento Black and Tip Top Taupe Classic Ink.  Next, I added a strip of Tip Top Taupe cardstock layered with a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack. 


I stamped the elephant from the Zoo Babies Stamp Set using Mint Macaron then attached that layer to Tip Top Taupe again and attached it to the card front.  The sentiment uses the Greeting Thinlets which I just LOVE.  As the finishing touch I used some Basic Black Candy Dots following along with the Card Sketch.

This card is just a great, general card that could easily be made into a baby card or kept for a friend that loves animals!
