Want a convenient card layout? This one is awesome! Even though these provide simple card ideas the cards are still beautiful, making it perfect for Christmas cards or any other occasion!

Card sketches are perfect for the beginner or seasoned paper crafter since they are a “map” to where the elements of your card are placed. Sketches (also known as card layouts) make designing quick and easy.

Create DIY cards for every occasion with this layout. I’ll provide three ideas for you but change up the images and greetings to take this convenient card layout to customize it for your needs.

Don’t miss the pictures for all three cards, the free layout template and supplies which I’ve listed below. Scroll past the video to see them.

Convenient Card Layout – Idea #1

Spruce up those simple patterns of designer papers by stamping an image randomly on the background. Use a single ink pad and a coordinating stamp image to enhance the original pattern! Here I’ve used the small pumpkin from the Ghoulish Goodies stamp set on the harlequin printed designer paper.

Did you know you can use embossing folders for debossed (on the above card) or embossed (on the card below) texture? Check out the video for my tips on identifying your embossing folder sides to achieve your desired look. Be sure to stamp your greeting first then emboss.


Convenient Card Layout – Idea #2

Gnome for the Holidays can be found in the Mini Catalog and I could not resist the adorable expressions and images. Great for young and young-at-heart, these cute images provide a cheerful holiday greeting.

Convenient Card Layout – Idea #3

Just because you have a card layout/sketch doesn’t mean you can’t improvise! I changed the circle for the wreath on this card.
