Dandy Garden Thanks Card. Ink Stamp Share Sketch Blog Hop, April 2021

 Good Afternoon Everyone,

Today I've joined in with the Ink Stamp Share blog hop and this month we are following a sketch challenge. This is the card I've made, using the fabulous Dandy Garden DSP

This is the sketch we had to follow, I made a slight adjustment to the design but overall I have kept it very similar.


Blackberry Bliss Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8"

Basic White Card Stock

2pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

Dandy Garden DSP

1pc - 2" x 5 5/8"

1pc - 1/2" x 5 5/8"

1pc - 1 1/2" x 3"

1pc - 1 1/2" x 4"

Fussy cut Dragonfly


Fold the Blackberry Bliss card stock along the score line and add one of the pieces of white tot he inside.

Take the other piece of white and add some of the DSP - take the larger piece and glue to the bottom, with the 1/2" strip above that.

Stamp the Thanks sentiment onto the white card towards the right side above the thin strip of DSP. 

Add this panel to the card front, placing three of the black gems under the sentiment.

Add banner tails to both of the remaining pieces of DSP, layer these together and add to the card front, placing the dragonfly on the card front half on the banners

Please continue through the hop and see what everyone else has done with this sketch. Donna Coffman is up next...
