March Card Challenge - Updated with Winner!

Post by wimom » Mon Mar 02, 2020 8:49 pm

And the winner of the $5 GC is No. 13,  ajmaluck! Thanks to all for playing along!
--------------------

This month's let's try a spelling challenge, with a sketch option. One card only please!

Option One: Make a card -- any theme, any size -- with elements that start with the letters M-A-R-C-H. Your elements can be a manufacturer, color, specific item, even a tool! Go ahead and be creative in using items to match M-A-R-C-H. You also can have one "freebie" -- substitute a letter of your choice for M, A, R, C or H. However, any one item can represent only one letter. For example, a red heart could be your R for Red or your H for Heart, but not both. Any questions, please ask.

Option Two: Use the sketch below. You do not have to use the M-A-R-C-H elements. Remember, the sketch is just a starting point -- adjust sizes and elements as works for you. 

Option Three, for a bonus: Use both the sketch and the M-A-R-C-H elements.

I made two samples this month. Both use the M-A-R-C-H elements and the central sentiment block of the sketch, with some variation in other sketch parts.


Image
M - Mini Brads (by "Birthday")
A - American Crafts pink star paper
R - Ric-Rack Ribbon
C- Cake
H - Happy

Image
M - Martha Stewart loopy border punch
A -Avery Elle puppy stamp and die
R - Ribbon (little bow on puppy)
C- Cupcake
H - Happy

Thank you! I just started doing sketches with the January Card Challenge this year, but I do have a background in newspaper design and find many of the same principles apply to card/layout design. I personally like sketches with measurements, even if just used for a starting point, so I like to include those. I've gotten some positive feedback from a few Cherries so I will try to offer one each month -- we'll see how it goes. Thanks for you kind comment 😃

Image Here's my entry. M is for Mad for Plaid, that's the collection the yellow layer is from. A is for Authentique, that's the company that made the green knotwork paper. R is for tape Runner which I used to glue it all together. :), C is for Cavy...which is another name for guinea pig. H is for Heather, those itty bitty flowers you see in front of him. I looked them up...they really are little oval sideways cup shaped flowers like the ones pictured! :) Thanks for including my card this month!
