Paper Craft Crew

 Card Sketch #157


Handmade Card created by Pam Staples for the Paper Craft Crew Design Team. Card Sketch Challenge 157. #stampinup #papercraftcrew #sunnygirlscraps #thankfulforestfriends


I have a cute Sneak Peek for you this week featuring the Thankful Forest Friends Stamp Set and the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper.  This weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch was lots of fun and was perfect for this card.  Since I'm in Northern MN enjoying the lake surrounded by all sorts of Wildlife, this is also a fun card.  I love the whimsical feel of this stamp set and focused on the Thankful for You as the sentiment. 


Making square shape cards can be lots of fun and create a new challenge especially if you never made one before just remember they cost a little extra to mail.  For the tag, based off the sketch, I used the Triple Banner Punch on the Soft Suede Card Stock.  The cute fox is stamped with Cajun Craze Classic Ink then I fussy cut him out.  Two little Candy Dots in the Cajun Craze finish out my "banner tag."  Based on the sketch I added the button with some Linen Thread.  If you look closely, you'll also notice I wrapped linen thread around the acorn Designer Series Paper ("DSP").

Love this fun card which is so versatile and I can't say enough how adorable the Thankful Forest Friends Stamp Set is along with the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper.  Whimsical, fun, masculine, neutral… It works for lots of different situations.

Here is this weeks Card Sketch with the Paper Craft Crew.  If you are having a mental creative block, card sketches are a great way to kickstart your creative juices.  Why not stop over at the Paper Craft Crew, create a card inspired by this weeks Card Sketch and post to the blog!
