Freshly Squeezed


Wondering why I titled this post "Freshly Squeezed"? lol! Thats because I squeezed this sketch below to fit inside my card centre :) This sketch is from Freshly Made sketches blog, sketch #14.


 Here is my take on the sketch. I don't make square cards basically because I cannot find square envelopes in my small town. So, I squeezed the sketch to fit into a normal sized card.



 I simple punched 2 bigger and smaller squares of each color, rounded the edges and layered them. Then the center piece is made using PTI's Tags It stamp set, punched and layered with foam.
I enjoyed making this one and came together very quick. I love the result and hope you do too. If you like to play the sketch, then here is the link to the challenge blog.

Have a great weekend! I have one more batch of shortbread cookies to make. Then packing and writing cards will finish all the gifts to teachers. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Luv!

How clever you are, to make the sketch work for a normal shaped card. This is a wonderful design. I'm thinking I could take this and turn it into a valentine....I love that Tag its, and haven't even used it yet. Thanks for the inspiration.
