Here's my card for this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I went stamp-less on this one, using patterned paper and die cuts to get my message across.

HB2U card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-dies from My Favorite Things
I covered most of the green card base with a piece of birthday patterned paper from a 6x6 paper pad.  The left edge of the patterned paper panel was covered with a contrasting strip of navy cardstock.  I die cut the HB2U tag from the My Favorite Things Tag Talk die set from golden yellow cardstock, then again from navy cardstock.  I used the letters from the navy die cut to fill in the negative space in the navy tag and added a simple twine bow, then adhered the tag to the upper left side of the cardfront.

Materials Used:
Tag Talk Die-namics dies (My Favorite Things); Green Acres cardstock (WPlus9); Night of Navy cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Harvest Gold cardstock (Papertrey Ink); It's a Celebration 6x6 paper pad (Carta Bella); twine


  1. What a fun card! Love the little tag mounted sideways on the top!

  2. I really like the way you interpreted the sketch, Lori! Great colors and papers, too. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
