Welcome to Casually Crafting Sketch Challenge.

We are a group of Demonstrators from around the World that love to share what we do an in hopes of inspiring you.  This is a Blog Hop that is geared to the Casual Stampers.   What is a Casual Stamper?  On that likes to stamp but doesn't have all the bells and whistles like the Dies and the Cut and Emboss Machine.

Our purpose is to create a card that most casual crafters could replicate.  I used my Scissors to fussy cut the Designer Series Paper.

Also this is a Sketch Challenge.  Here is the Sketch.

I did change the spacing because I didn't like how it showed with an Imperial card.  The Metric cards are taller and I did add a layer to the base just to accent the DSP.

Here is my Card.  The Designer Series Paper makes it easy for a Casual Stamer to get the look of die cutting without the Cut and Emboss machine.  I will be sure to include the supplies below.

Santa Express Stampin Up

Cute right?  When I did the video, I suggested a few things for the inside, but I later realized that It involved the Cut and Emboss Machine.

The measurements for this card are:

Parakeet Party:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored @ 4 1/4"

Shaded Spruce: 4" x 5 1/4"

Poppy Parade: 1 1/8" x 1 7/8" for sentiment

Santa's Express DSP:  2 @1" x 3 3/4", 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" for center piece, Misc cut outs.

Check out the video and see how this card came together.
