Use Your Stash Blog Hop: Sketch Books

392149_10150481419181186_1990709562_n

Today, I made these cards using one of the Card Workshops in the book Wishes.  I have pictured the cards side by side so you can see how I changed up the same card layout.  Some I created the same as designed while others I rotated the sketch to a new orientation.  By using double sided B&T Duos Paper, I was able to change the cards even more by using the backside on some of the cards.  With this Card Workshop I was able to create 16 cards but with these alterations not one of them are the same!  I used the same stamp set for quickness and added whatever embellishments I had on hand.  Really wish I had some extra Gold Sequins.  They would have made embellishing a lot easier!  I like the simple ones with the embossed heart and no added embellishing the best. 🙂
