Using a card sketch

This card that I want to share today has a number of firsts in it. Firstly, I discovered card sketches at Pagemaps.com. Making use of one of the January ones, I created this card


The puppy is an exercise from the Kit and Clowder All About Animals class which I cut out with my newly acquired PixScan mat on my Silhouette Cameo. He was printed on Canson XL Drawing paper and colored with my Prismacolor colored pencils.

Using the eighth card sketch on the aforementioned page, I assembled the card with a panel of patterned paper at the bottom and a panel of kraft cardstock that I had run through an embossing folder at the top. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white card stock using a retired Stampin Up stamp

I cut a strip of dark brown card stock with a pair of scalloped scissors, cut the strip in half and adhered a piece to the top and the bottom of the white strip before gluing that to the card front. Finally, I added the puppy.
