Card Making Sketches





Card making sketches are rough card designs of your card layout.

They are great place to start when planning your handmade card.

There are so many ways to design your card....Landscape... portrait......shaped.....or square.

What to have in the background? Keep it plain and simple... add patterned paper....stamped or embossed images.... or stencilled designs.

And then there's the focal point and sentiment - where to position them?.....centre...top....bottom.....etc

With so many elements to making a card it's easy to become overwhelmed by the choices.

By drawing out your ideas you capture your thought processes on paper.

It doesn't need to be complicated!

Or if you design your cards as you go along to scribble down your finished result.
