LIM 238 - Sketch Challenge

Once again I'm running behind getting my cards photographed!  I finished these two card several days ago, but just got around to taking pics this morning.  As a matter of fact, I'm also going to share a couple of cards I made for a challenge LAST week, but never got them posted!  

These first two cards are for the current challenge at Less is More, which happens to be a sketch challenge. Here's the sketch: 

Here's my take:

Not much to either of these card...very CAS!  I die cut a stitched rectangle with a SSS die, then cut it at an angle.  I cut the letters for "happy" from the top piece, then cut them again from some gold foil paper and inserted the gold letters back into the negative space where I cut the white letters out.  I have the top piece popped up with some fun foam and the bottom piece adhered directly to the card base.  I added a small strip of black card stock behind the letters thinking that it would show how the letters are popped over the bottom panel.  The birthday sentiment is from a PTI set.

This second card was made by cutting 2 panels (4 x 5.25) and them cutting both at the same time to get the same angle.  I then adhered them them together with some score tape. (and I have the reverse cuts to make another card!) I cut the SSS die "thanks" 3 times from the blue paper, stacked them and adhered them above the diagonal line.  The remainder of the sentiment is from a Winnie & Walter set.

These next two cards were the ones I made for last week's sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch...but I didn't get them posted in time.

Front white panel cut with the Cameo, then popped over a blue base and adhered to a white card base. The sentiment is from PTI and then I added a few sequins....quick and easy!

For this card, I cut a 4 x 5.25 panel, embossed it, then cut the swirl with an Xacto knife. I used a PTI sentiment and curved it on my MISTI to match the curve of the embossed panel.  I had to trim off a portion of the bottom panel so that there would be a nice gap for the sentiment to shine through.  I added some bling to the embossed panel and as the dot on the "i".  The embossed panel was popped up on the card base using fun foam.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit!  Hope you'll come back soon!  Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...

Pin It!

All gorgeously CAS cards, Susan. Very frustrating when you miss challenges though isn't it? I love your striped blue panel on card three, so stylish. And your two super CAS cards for the sketch are wonderful, I love the gold lettering with the black and white.
Thanks for sharing with us.
