PageMaps Team-up - CardMaps by Gloria

Good morning, Crafters! This is Gloria Stengel with you again.  The Authentique Design Team joined up with PageMaps for July! It is my turn to share my map (sketch) and what I created.
This was the card sketch that I was given. (Since I am not much of a scrapbooker these days, I asked for a card sketch.) I was told I could make anything I wished, in any theme I wished, except I had to keep the design in the horizontal position. Easy peasy!
This is the first card I made, using the Authentique Party Collection. The card is 5" x 7" and is designed as a birthday card! I pretty much followed the sketch exactly for this card.

When I use a sketch, I decide how many prints to use based on how the sketch is drawn. I also decide on the elements I will use, for example, this sketch shows some banners and a scallop border, which I decided to use. However, I did not use the "apples" but instead used a large sentiment strip in place of where some large, round embellishments or die cuts could go (i.e., apples).
I added some sentiments from the Party Components 6x12 Die Cut sheet.
I also like to decorate the inside of my cards. There is space on the inside to add a gift card and a hand written or stamped message.

Now, I loved working with the sketch so much that...I made a second card!
This time I used the Authentique Frontier Collection. I love this vintage collection and thought it would be fun to use it again. I modified the sketch a little, but kept the same key elements as before.

This time, rather than using the "apples" I used the bow embellishment and also the large image. Rather than the scallop border, I used the denim sticker strip. I used a ticket for the sentiment, but I kept the three banners, only this time, mine are quite small and just peek out from under the main image.
I added a fun burlap bow and a wood button to tie into the country theme. The inside of this card is blank and ready for a sentiment.

There are so many ways to interpret a sketch! I am going to try this sketch again, only I plan to rotate it vertically!

Thanks for joining me today! Make sure you check out what all of our PageMaps sketch projects during the month of July!
