My Go-To Card Sketch

I love finding or being given new card sketches and recipes.  When using them, I can concentrate on paper choices, embellishments, and cardmaking techniques.  Some of my most creative and complex cards resulted from having a card sketch or recipe to begin the creative process. 

Sometimes, however, (most times, actually) when I have a lot of cards to make - Card Fairy missions or Cards for Soldiers Challenges - I just need a go-to sketch; one that I know will be quick and easy.  That's what I'm sharing today.  These cards are basically the same sketch.  Each requires a background paper, mats, and a patterned paper.  You can see that the embellishments range from brads, to ribbon, to stick-ons, to clips.  Some use Cricut die cuts, others use stamps.  I've turned or arranged the elements with slight variations, but the layouts evolve from a common sketch.  This layout always seems to work for me.  I can dig through my scrap drawers and come up with something that looks good and can be completed quickly.

I look forward to your visits and your comments.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
