Tearing a Sketch

Hello and happy Monday to you! I will admit I post way more cards on my Instagram account than this blog. It is just so quick and easy to just give the details. lol.
The cards I made today were pretty quick to put together with printed paper, a punch, simple stamping and a few die cuts.
Both of the cards used the same supplies. I started with a top-folding A2 white card base. Then taking a piece of printed paper from The Paper Studio cut to 3.35" by 2.27" I tore it at a diagonal to mimic the sketch photo and punched the snowman from the top right corner. The punch is an old one from Stampin' Up. Using the Penny Black Merry and Joy die I cut four from black card stock, stacked and glued them together. I glued the paper to the card base and stamped the greeting from Hello Bluebird (Typed Christmas) in Versafine black ink. Then glued the merry/joy over the torn edge and coated them with black glossy Nuvo drops.

This card will fill the Timeout Challenge inspiration photo, CAS(E) This Sketch and a CAS design for the Less is More Challenge. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.


  1. Well this super batch rocks all the challenges


  2. Wow, you've done amazingly well to combine those challenges, tearing the paper to create the sketch was a fabulous idea. Love the red/black/white theme with the big glossy sentiments. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

  3. Love these cards Sue! Bridging the torn gap with the glossy sentiment die cut was inspired. Really classy looking for a card that includes tearing. Fab work. Thanks so much for showing us these beauties at Less is More xx


Thank you so much for your comments. It means a lot to me!
