Tall & Skinny sketch challenge


My name is Heather and I’m addicted to sketch challenges! Monday’s sketch challenge over at the Stampin’ for all Facebook group was set by the lovely Victoria Littlewood…

And here’s what I created following this design…

I used the Come Sail Away designer series paper to make this nice and nautical card.

My card base is Whisper White card measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm. I cut a piece of Night of Navy card to measure 10 x 14 cm and embossed it with my Subtle embossing folder. The effect is rather subtle so hopefully you can see it better in this photo…

I think it works quite well and reminds me of ripples on water.

I cut 3 pieces of designer series paper; one measured 9.5 x 6 cm and the other two measure 11 x 4 cm. I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set as I just love that font. I used Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White card and cut it with an oval from the Stitched Shapes dies.

I then tied some Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s twine through one of the Sail Away trinkets and tied it in a bow. If I were a sailor I might have come up with a nice knot but I’m not. lol. This was added to the card with mini glue dots.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card and will be tempted to join us over in the Stampin’ For All Facebook group to join in with the weekly challenges. It is rather addictive, you have been warned!

Happy crafting,
