Becky Fleck Card Maps Sketch with Stitches

Hello, Friends!  I'm so excited to share that the Design Team Members of Authentique have teamed up with the wonderful ladies at Card Maps and have used all Authentique papers to do the sketches!  Head on over to the Page Maps Blog  and the Card Maps Blog to see all our creations.  Here are my two submissions to the collaboration!

I chose to work with a CardMap instead of doing a layout.  This is the sketch I received from Becky.

I decided to use the same sketch in two different ways, both using the Stitches collection.

This first card follows the original sketch pretty closely, with just a few "Kathy" touches thrown in.  Instead of wrapping string or twine around the top of the card, I elected to lace ribbon through a border die.  And instead of a flower to the left of the sentiment, I used a button topped rosette.

Inside the card, I created a little flap page and a lovely pocket.  

The flap opens to reveal a little gift card pocket and totally adorable pink sewing machine.  I want this machine in my craft room!

This wee folio is actually a felt lined needle book.  

I also want these dresses hanging in my closet, complete with gloves, hat, purse and shoes, thank you very much!  

Open the mini folio to find a vintage button card along with a spot to write a note. 

The Sketch turned on its Head

The second card, also made with Stitches, turns the sketch on its head.  All the elements from the original sketch are there.  I just reversed them.  If you've never tried doing this with a card sketch, give it a try!  It's loads of fun, and good exercise for your brain, too.

The inside is laid out in the same fashion as the first card with flap, pocket and inserts.  This time, I lined the top half of the card with Authentique Spectrum Cardstock in Robin's Egg Blue 1

I created a little belly band for the needle book and added the title with the alpha stickers.

The lower pocket contains another mini folio.

Here's a peek inside the needle book and the folio.  

I hadn't worked with a card sketch in many years, so this was a fun exercise.  Feel free to use this sketch and share your Authentique projects with us in social media.  We'd love to see what you make.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
