Super Kaleidoscope Sketch

I'm back in the Studio! I had a lovely time visiting my mom and the kids had a ball, too. I enjoyed a bit of time in my studio this morning and here's the first project I created, in accordance to the Super Sketchy Sunday challenge at 365 Cards.

Here's the sketch we were to follow: --The piece of Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper (A.K.A. "DSP") that I used is two-sided (as are most DSPs) and I used both sides of the same piece of paper. I found the mid-point on the DSP and then measured ¾-inch from one edge and cut the two triangular pieces (mostly yellow in my design, beige in the sketch). They're just the flipside of the orangey floral piece.

--Adhere the pieces of Designer Series Paper to a scrap of white card stock on the back (to make a stronger unit into which to punch the ½-inch circle for the Whisper White Jumbo Grommet).

--Next, I attached a piece of Whisper White Satin Ribbon to an 8 ½-inch by 4 ¼-inch (and folded) piece of Tempting Turquoise. Once that was attached, I added the bit with the Designer Series Paper pieces and grommet.

--To finish it off, I made a knot with another piece of Whisper White Satin Ribbon and attached it inside the grommet with a mini glue dot.

The trickiest part of this card was working with the satin ribbon. You have to be careful not to snag it, as it's really satin! This will be a versatile sketch to use with all of my DSP. Check my "Thank Ewe" card to see another DSP idea…
