Tonight’s YouTube Live featured these 3 perfect examples of the power of a card sketch. I demonstrated one card and shared the two additional samples with alternate products. A simple card sketch can produce a multitude of different cards. Mix up the designer paper, colors and stamp sets and skip the work of trying to create different layouts.

I’ve included the YouTube event recording* below along with pictures of all three cards, supplies and the sketch. Be sure to scroll down to see them.

*Prior to finishing tonight’s Live, there was a glitch on YouTube’s behalf and you’ll notice that the end of the video ends abruptly. Thankfully, I was able to demonstrate and show the alternatives before it ended.
