JAI 123- Just Add a Sketch!

 A Sketch Challenge

Well here it is Ladies, I did promise you a look at the challenge card that I managed to do yesterday.  So this is for the Just Add Ink challenge site.  This week they decided on a sketch challenge.  So I love the vintage look so that is where I started.  I have also been trying to have a play with the new Framelits Labels Dies to see what different shape cards I can come up with.

My card uses Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla cardstock.  I used the largest die from the Labels Collection and fold my cardstock so that I could just cut away the top, to get the curvy look.  I have also folded it twice that so I got a concertina style card.  I used the Finial Press embossing folder and then I have sponged the raised bits with early espresso ink. I have used the Boho Blossoms punch for my flowers and the tag punch for the tag with an antique mini clip.  The stamp sets used for the words are Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess set) and the Tiny Tags for the 4 you on the tag.  The inside of the card I lightly spritzed the very vanilla cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you like my card. So don't forget to pop over to the Just Add Ink website for more inspiration.


  1. Ooh, you're clever, Karen! What a special birthday card for someone. It's really lovely. Great take on the JAI sketch; so glad you could play along with us this week!

  2. Oooh, what a clever take on our sketch. I would never have guessed it was an accordian fold card from the first photo. Great job! Thanks for joining in with us at JAI this week.

  3. I really love this card i hope that this will appear for one of our classes
