Each Sunday Alison Solven (my border buddy) and I take turns creating a card using one of our card sketches. Sketches can help to get your creativity fired up. They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.
Today's card features the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!® along with the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper which is all part of the Hydrangea Hill Suite of products. We will be featuring this suite of products in our May Border Buddy PDF Tutorial.
You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout as I did today or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal. Let your imagination run wild!
All Stampin’ Up!® products were used to create today's card.
