Slimline Card for the Sketch Challenge at Splitcoaststampers

A slimline card with some bright and cheery papers from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper for the Sketch Challenge at this week.

The sketch ….

My card …

Close up of the DSP and sponging on the embossed panel ….


  • This slimline card is 21cm x 20 cm scored on the short side at 10cm. I have turned the sketch anticlockwise 90°.
  • The centre embossed panel is actually a piece of the Pattern Party DSP whose pattern matches exactly the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. All you need to do is line up the DSP in the Embossing Folder to add dimension to the panel. I then used a Sponge Dauber and Whisper White Craft Ink on the raised areas of the pattern. This had two effects – highlight the embossing and tone down the bright Crushed Curry DSP.
  • When I added the bright floral DSP to the Thick Basic White card base, I thought that it looked too stark. I took a Petal Pink marker and coloured in the white border around the DSP.
