Sketchy time at Retro Rubber

Sketches are THE best for a quick make on a card for any occasion.  I used this sketch to make a super quick birthday card in under ten minutes!  Please come and play along with us at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.

Here is the sketch to start your card planning.

For my card I went into my left over scrapbook papers and selected a very Retro collection, that I have had for at least 12 over more years.  Basic Grey Euphoria has some of my favorite colors to use in crafting.  
  • Base and diagonal both started with 4" x 5 1/4" pieces of cardstock.  To get the perfect diagonal I made pencil marks 1 3/4" from each end before using my trimmer to create the diagonal.
  • Unity Stamps " . . . birthday jubilee" sentiment is stamped in Versa Color Peony and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  This image was easy to fussy cut.
  • The edges of the card base are inked with Versa Color Peony
  • The layers are adhered together with the sentiment added with dimensional foam adhesive.  
  • Voila' a finished card in under 10 minutes!

Please enjoy this sketch and post it over at Retro Rubber Challenge blog.  We we love to see how you complete this sketch in your make.
