Dandelion Wishes Sketch Challenge

 Hi Everyone,

Those of you who follow me will know that I regularly show you projects that are challenges.  Sometimes it's colours, sometimes a particular product and sometimes it's a sketch.  I do lots of challenges with two of my crafty friends - Taffycrafting (Donna Lester) and Vickieloudesigns (Victoria Littlewood) and we have a regular weekly one called Share it on a Sunday. Well, now Donna has challenged us to do some sketch challenges over the next few weeks to keep our creative mojo going and I'm going to use them as a chance to show you new products as well as some old favourites that I haven't used for a while.  So, here goes with my Challenge 26 of #33, I hope that you like it.


1 piece of mango melody card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" and 1 piece 2 1/2" x 3 1/4"
2 pieces of very vanilla card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", 1 piece 2 1/4" x 3" and 1 piece 1/2" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of mango melody dsp (Brights collection) 3 5/8" x 5 3/8"
Dandelion Wishes stamp set
Mango melody ink
Wrapped in Texture embossing folders
Cut and Emboss machine
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply scored
Bone folder


Score the large piece of mango melody at 4 1/8" on the long side and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Cut the dsp at 1 1/2" on the short side to give you two pieces and adhere to one of the very vanilla mat layers leaving a border round the outer edges, flip one of the pieces over so that you show both sides.

Emboss the 1/2" strip of very vanilla and the 2 1/2" x 3 1/4" rectangle of mango melody using the Wrapped in Texture folders, on this card I have used both.

Adhere the 1/2" strip on top of the dsp covering the join in the papers.

Stamp the sentiment and decoration on the smaller very vanilla rectangle and on the layer for the inside if required.

Adhere the inside layer and then add the sentiment layer to the embossed piece with dimensionals and then adhere to the card front at an angle as in the picture.

Sketch challenges are great fun and have endless possibilities, why don't you give this one a try.
