If you'd like to host one of these tutorials or challenges, email challenges operationwritehome. We're working on a special blog badge for those who help out creating content for this blog : Cardmaking Using card sketches Since we've begun our sketch challenges, it may be of some help to talk a little about sketches, how they're used, how to adapt them, and storing them for future use.
Some of our newbies have asked what the sketches are about, so let's chat about sketches!
Sketches are layouts. They're a suggested design for a card, providing general elements and their placement on a card. There are general shapes provided, and on this blog, measurements to start you off on the right foot. Card sizes: A2. This is the standard size requested for Operation Write Home cards, since it's the optimum size to get the most cards into the boxes for deployed heroes!
Ad apt a sketch to suit your supplies. While the measurements are provided, if your stamped image is larger or smaller, or your ribbon is thinner or thicker, feel free to change it up! Change a round element to a square, or vice versa; change the number or style of suggested embellishments. Make it your own. Change things up a bit by turning the sketch 90 degrees; this is easy to do if you print the sketch and turn it physically, so you can see where the elements land.
You can also flip it horizontally or vertically as well—whatever suits your needs! Add layers of cardstock, extra ribbons and embellishments, or anything else you desire! Credit the sketcher. If you use someone's sketch, it's always a great courtesy to link to them if you post your card online! Some sketches provide measurements for the pieces in the sketch, some do not. On a sketch of either type, feel free to change the dimensions of any piece to match your own supplies or design; those measurements are given simply to help those who like that sort of thing! Create your own sketchbook.
Many cardmakers like to keep a sketchbook on hand; here are a number of ideas to consider: Print out pages from sketch sites and put them in a 3ring binder.

Mary, I think your sketches are just great. Someone told me that you create kits or sets of backgrounds so they are ready for cards when you need them. Are they based on these sketches? Do you explain it somewhere on your blog? I went to Card Sets but those videos didn't show that idea.
I am on HughesNet and it doesn't like for me to watch 13 videos during one data period. Hate that! Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much Mary! It sure will help when I get crafter's block : I love your youtube videos. Just right click on the sketch to download, choose "save image as", give it a file name, then save to where ever you save your photos on your computer easy peasy!
I just used Sketch 10 to make a birthday card for my granddaughter and turned out so cute!!! I can't wait to give it to her. Instead of a circle in the middle I put a butterfly with it's wings lifted. She loves butterflies. Is there some way that I can send you a picture? I love your videos!
