Inspirational Sketches Center Lift Card for Creative Creases #85

It’s time for a new Creative Creases challenge. Firstly, thanks to all those who participated in the last challenge! If you haven’t played in the challenge yet, I hope I can inspire you to join the challenge that’s starting today! So, you all know how much I love stamps with nature, and birds in particular, right? I just had to get Inspirational Sketches when I was placing an order recently. The images are beautiful! So, I paired it with the Center Lift fun fold. I enjoy this easy fold and you can make it in both the portrait and landscape positions.

Once you’re finished here, check out the current Creative Creases challenge; just click the button below!

My Secrets!

Create this card using Inspirational Sketches by Stampin' Up! and Debbie Mageed at Secrets To Stamping

Let’s start with the card base…

  • Firstly, this A2 card started with cardstock cut to 4-1/4 x 7-3/4 and scored at 5-1/2. Also, for the card front panel, I cut cardstock to 4-3/4 x 3-1/2. Then, the designer paper cut to 4-1/8 x 2-1/8 (top of front panel) and 4-5/8 x 3-3/8 for the front panel.
  • Inside: DSP cut to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8.

Now, the FUN part!

  • I stamped the two images from Inspirational Sketches in Pecan Pie ink. Then, I cropped them out with the Perennial Postage dies.
  • After that, I stamped the sentiment from Inspiration Sketches in Pecan Pie ink and cropped it out with the banner in Stylish Shapes dies.
  • Finally, I added the Swirl Dots to the centers of the flowers.

Then, on the inside…

  • After I cut the designer paper and adhered it to the card base, I stamped the image from Inspirational Sketches in Pecan Pie Ink and cropped it out with the larger size from the Perennial Postage die.

  1. Wow. I love this – that Specialty paper is wonderful and so perfect with those sketched images!! And the fold is perfect – one I am going to have to “borrow”! 🙂

  2. Debbie, this is so beautiful. The mono-tones create quite the elegant portrait. I love that you carried the theme through to the inside by using one more Perennial Postage die.
    Simply beautiful, my friend. Thank you for sharing your talent, once again.

  3. Debbie, your card exudes richness. I LOVE the DSP that goes so well with Pecan Pie. I looked at the dots and wondered why didn’t I order them? Then when I got to your supply list and saw the photo, I realized I had two packages…lol. I love your new logo. Have a great weekend and thank you for sharing our creations.

  4. Debbie, your blog is looking great! And the new logo is lovely! What a beautiful card with that Inspirational Sketches stamp set! I especially love those mushrooms on the inside of the card! And that specialty DSP is so pretty! Thanks for having me as a regular guest designer on CCC!

  8. Pretty monochromatic card. I really like the combination of “regular” rectangles and the “postage edged” rectangles. Thanks for joining us at Die Cut Divas.
