Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a card inspired by Sketch N Scrap card sketch #100. This is the sketch designed by Lisa:
I was just so inspired by the flowers so I had to make another floral themed card with my layering stamps. I created a clean and simple thank you card. I seemed to need ‘thank you cards’ more than anything so it’s good to keep a few in my stash.
I stamped the images and then cut them out with my scissors and adhered them onto the card. I did stamped the sentiment directly onto the peach textured cardstock.
Hop over to Sketch N Scrap for more inspiration from the design team members. We hope you will join us with our sketch challenges! We would love to see your creations. This post will be my last post as part of the design team for Sketch N Scrap. It had been a wonderful journey being part of Sketch N Scrap. Thank you so much!
Hello! It’s the second sketch for Sketch N Scrap birthday bash crop today on the blog. It’s a cute sketch designed by Lisa and it’s versatile for any occasion.
I created a fringed card. It is so fun because it is a little bit 3D. I have seen these cards and always wanted to try it. When I saw the sketch, I was inspired to create the little fringes!
I used my Cameo to create the 5 strips of fringes. I probably could have use scissors and it would have been faster but I was diecutting something else anyway, might as well let the machine do the work. I adhered the fringes onto a card panel that I diecut with a stitched rectangle die. I adhered a strip of gold on the side that I punched with a border punch for a little bit more interest. I decided to cut off the the edge of the border to let the border strip pop out more. I made the fringe all the way to the top of the card and stamped my thank you sentiment onto my card.
The dimensional of the fringed card is so fun!
I hope you will join us on Sketch N Scrap 5th birthday bash crop celebration happening on Facebook. Hop over to Sketch N Scrap for more inspiration from the design team members! We would love to see your creations!

Ever since I discover my love for shaker cards, I am constantly trying to look for ways to make them differently with the crafty tools I already have in my stash. Today I would like to share a Thank you card using punches.
I made my card based on a card sketch at Sketch~N~Sketch, and also I was inspired at Simon Monday Challenge: Thank you cards.
Briefly on how I made my card:
- Take a piece of 6″ x 6″ double-sided pattern paper, a 4″x4″ inch pattern paper and a card base of 5.5″ x 5.5″.
- To ensure the punched design is centered on the paper, draw a line 1.25″ horizontally and a line 3″ vertically. Make sure the cut& fold punch arrows lined up perfectly with the lines drawn. Then punch following the markings on the punch by moving the punch anti-clockwise.
- That is what the punched design should look like when finished.
- Fold back the flaps and tuck them under the un-punched sections to get the flower effect.
- Prepare the shaker pouch with old packaging and the Hotmarks tool. I used gold and brown sequins, peach flower-shaped squins and some tinsel glitter.
- I used foam tape to allow more room for the shaker contents to move about and also to add more dimension to the card.
Then I diecut the sentiment “thanks” from Hero Arts Stamps & Cuts set 6 times so that my sentiment had more dimension. I also used Martha Stewart butterfly punch to embellish the card with small butterflies.
Here are more pictures of the card:
The tinsel glitter did cling to the plastic sheet due to the static but you can still see the background and the sequins here and there when you shake the card.
Since I enjoyed punching the the paper so much, I made another card. A really colorful one.

I often make “Thank you” cards for the people in my life for their awesome-ness! Can’t thank them enough.
