Beautiful Thistle Sketch – GDP374

In Flowers by Emma GoddardLeave a Comment

Hello, the Global Design Project have a new two-week sketch challenge to inspire you have the festive season. For my card I have used the Beautiful Thistle Bundle, which will be available to purchase when the new Mini Catalogue goes live on the 5th Jan.

A sketch is such a great jumping off point when you need a little inspiration with any stamp set or colours you may have on your desk.

Creating the background

  1. Stamp the main Thistle image randomly over the Basic White background
  2. Use a Blending Brush to add some Night of Navy Ink around the edges
  3. Splatter some Night of Navy Ink from the Dark Stampin’ Blend pen
  4. Add this layer to your card with some multipurpose glue

Adding the featured image

  • Cut the largest square from the Stylish Shape Dies
  • Stamp the Thistle image in Night of Navy Ink
  • Colour the Evening Evergreen Ribbon with light Night of Navy Blends to create a Tartan look to this ribbon
  • Add a loop of this ribbon to the back of the square die cut
  • Tie around some linen thread into a bow
  • Add this panel to the front of the card, using Dimensionals for depth

Completing the card

  • Stamp out your chosen sentiments in Versamark and Heat Emboss in White. My sentiment is from a new Stamp Set called Sentimental Park (available 5th Jan 2023)
  • Cut out and add to your card front
  • Complete the card with some Enamel Dots (also, available 5th Jan 2023)
