Sketch Saturday Challenge



I had fun working with this sketch from Sketch Saturday Challenge.  I also used a few different techniques to get to the finished product.

I used two embossing folders on the background card stock.  First I inked up the birthday folder by Cuttlebug with periwinkle ink and then ran it threw the machine.  Then I put the same piece of card stock in the Swiss dot folder and ran that threw the machine.   It created this background.  The birthday embossing folder lost the embossing and the Swiss dots folder became prominent.  I hope I explained this clear enough. 

I found a tutorial on Pinterest on how to use corner and border punches to create any size you want instead of being stuck with the sizes specified on the information sheet.  It’s pretty easy to do.  I will place a link to this tutorial at the end of the posting.  The woman says it can be done with any corner/border punches!
