I’m not a cardmaker, but I’ve developed an interest in papercraft since I looked at making custom packaging for my polymer clay jewellery and got a glimpse of all the incredible things that people were doing.
A couple of days ago I commented on a challenge card that the lovely Narelle Fasulo had made, and she jokingly said she’d covert me to a card maker yet. And even get me to love flowers. Eek!
The flower-loving bit would be quite a stretch, but I figured I’d give challenge cardmaking a go. I mostly like clean and simple designs so the CAS(E) this Sketch challenges appealled.
So here’s my very first card shared anywhere, my interpretation of CAS(E) this Sketch #127.
This is the sketch I worked from:
Update 21 June 2015
It was a lovely surprise to learn that the folks over at CAS(E) this Sketch selected this card as one of their favourites for this challenge! Talk about encouraging!
I gather I get to display this…
Cool, huh? :D

WOW Sue, this is amazing, totally love it. Isn’t that a flower…..lol
Thanks Narelle! :)
And it’s a… thing. The idea didn’t quite work out in practice the way it looked in my head! Originally I wasn’t going to split the lifted-up sections, but was going to curl and twist the top two differently to the bottom two for a semi-butterfly effect. But it didn’t look right so the card above happened instead. I’ll have another go at my original idea later… will probably have to trim the paper, I think.
Oh, this is so cool! Fabulous take on the sketch
Sue the dimension on your flowers looks sensational! I really hope you will join us for our new sketch going live soon!
Thanks for joining us at Case this sketch!
Thank you, Hannelie! I look forward to seeing the new sketch!
