I’m the featured card designer this month at Stick it Down! That means that when the new sketch for the month is revealed, one card is shown as an example, and this month it’s mine! Woo hoo!
Here is the card sketch:
I subscribe to Dawn Griffith’s blog and she recently had a tutorial for this really cool Pop up panel card. I’ve been dying to make one and my son’s birthday is coming up at the end of September. He’s a football lover. It all came together when I got this Sports Balls set as a freebie from Miss Kate Cuttables.
Look how neat this is! You get a surprise when you open it.
Is it obvious that the ball is being thrown? Each one is a little higher, further to the right, and smaller to show the perspective of moving away from the viewer. 🙂 I added some dirt flying off the ball by using an old stamp my friend gave me. It’s called Itty Bitty Backgrounds and is from Stampin’ Up. The ink is both Early Espresso by Stampin’ Up and
Cocoa by Close to My Heart because dirt isn’t all one color.
I hope you come and check out the sketch challenges over at Stick it Down. There is this card sketch, a single-page layout sketch, and a double-page. Winners get to be guest designers!
