This week at Get Sketchy we are using sketch #68 as our inspiration.  I love this sketch for a few different reasons.  1. It's a great sketch for flipping and turning etc. 2. It's a great sketch for anyone just starting out using sketches.    This week I made 2 different cards using this sketch.   

Here are my takes on the sketch..

Products used:
Kaiser Crafts pattern paper
Kraft cardstock
Vintage lace
Gift tag

On my second one I turned it into a gift card holder to hang on my Christmas Tree.  I just love the home made feel of these and they look great hanging from the tree.   Keep on reading for step by step instructions on how to make these.  These are so easy to make that you will find yourself making several...  

Products used:
Pattern paper is from JoAnns
Bazzill Cardstock 
Kraft Cardstock
Inkadinkado stamp
VersaMagic ink in Hint of pesto
clear embossing powder
Stickles in Christmas Red
Distress inks in Fired brick and Old paper
Making Memories loopy ribbon
Hemp cord from JoAnns

  1. trim cardstock to 4 1/4 x 7 and fold in half with the folded side at the bottom and glue on both sides leaving the top open
  2. trim pattern paper to 4 1/4 x 3 1/2
  3. stamp image on left corner
  4. emboss
  5. Ink edges of pattern paper and adhere to the front of your gift card holder
  6. Adhere ribbon to the bottom of your card
  7. Cut out Christmas tree (I used my Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge)
  8. ink edges of tree and place on your card ( I used foam tape to pop my tree up a bit)
  9. Punch your holes on top and add eyelets to them
  10. run your cord,ribbon etc through them and tie a bow
  11. Hang them in your tree, with a stocking etc.
This will make a great teacher gift with a Starbucks etc card inside.
