Here is my Weekend Sketch Challenge: it was to do a z-fold card, with a square/rectangle front. My card measures 4.25 x 11, and scored at 2.75 and 5.5. This is then folded accordian style, or like a Z. My base is Wild Wasabi, which I stamped Linen in Versamark for the bottom half of the card (the inside of the card and partly shown from the outside of the card. Then I stamped the swirl from Baroque Motif in brown, and a sentiment from Baroque Motif. I decided to stamp 2 cards at the same time. They are mostly the same, slightly different. I also added a sentiment from So Many Sayings on the inside. The outside fold has a piece of Designer paper (Hobby Lobby) cut 2.5x4 and adhered. Then I added a Bashful Blue rectangle over this, with another Designer Paper layered over this. I used a flower from Baroque Motif stamped in Buckaroo Blue (In Color 06-07) and stamped over this in Versamark and heat embossed in clear glitter. I lightly sponged this in basic Brown and added 2 small cutouts of the small flower from this stamp set (stamped in brown and Cameo Coral). I used my Crop-a-Dile and set copper eyelets in the middle. I used this same process for the flower in the right top corner. The Top right corner flower is adhered with a 3-D popdot so that the Bashful Blue paper can be tucked under slightly to keep card folded together. On the Bashful Blue rectangle, I stamped the argyle stamp from All in a Row along the edge of the DP to look like zig-zag stitching. I think I'm getting a little better at lining this up :) On the top card, I used the corner rounder on the outer fold. I think I like that look.
