Top O' The Mornin' - Whimsie Doodles & 2 Sketches 4 You


Happy Saturday!! I am back today with another Whimsie Doodles creation using the new St. Pat's Day digital set. Earlier this week I shared my 'green beer card', but today I decided to use one of the 'serious' sentiments in the set. :)


The layout for this card uses the latest 2 Sketches 4 You sketch - Laura's Sketch 47. Since I used a clear card base, some of the elements from the sketch are actually on the inside of the card. When the card is closed, as shown below, it is easier to see how I was inspired by the sketch.


To get a top-folding clear card, I cut a ShortCuts Clear Full Sheet in half and folded it by hand. Don't forget - all ShortCuts products are 25% off while supplies last!!


To add some more dimension to the card, I adhered the circle sentiment to the front using foam dots. The scalloped circles were cut using Nestabilities. As a final touch I used my glitter pen on the image, I tried to catch the effect in the detail shot below.


Make sure to visit the Whimsie Doodles blog to see what the other DT members are doing with the new images. You can purchase the St. Pat's set at their online store for only $5.00 and you get 6 different images!
