Card Sketch Ideas for Creative Card Making

Card sketch ideas

Card sketches are the best way to help you jump-start your creativity when you’re in a slump. Today I have five ideas that are simple and perfect to keep you stamping like a pro.

Birthday card featuring the In Bloom stamp set from Stampin' UP!

Card number one is simple and fun. I chose to use the same color combo for all the cards today just to keep this even more simple and affordable.

At the bottom of this blog post I have a link to a document you can print that shares all the measurements for each card.

You can complete these ideas even easier by using the guide I provided linked below.

The second card is repeating the same color combination, you could step this card up by background stamping or embossing the bottom layer. You could also add ribbon to give it a little extra something.

Slimline card sketch idea

This is one of my favorites of the five I am sharing today. I love slimline cards. This one is extra small the finished card is only 3″ x 6″.

This was a fun card to create but I admit it’s not my favorite of the five. I think if I had used a pattern paper for the bottom layer I would have liked it much better.

Last I used brand new designer series paper on this card. This paper is from the new 2021-2022 Stampin’ UP! Annual catalog. And I love it so much.
