I Heart Sketches

Hello!  This weekend I have been having fun playing with the sketch for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge, so I wanted to share one of the cards I made.  I'll share the others in the next couple days. 

First off, here is the sketch:

And here is the card that I created, keeping in mind this week's AEIHeartU Challenge theme of sequins:

First, I masked off the rectangle and then stamped the background using one of the stamps from Avery Elle's Woodgrain & More stamp set.  This card was the first time that I attempted to make a double die cut piece.  I started by die cutting the goose, making sure to keep the edge of the die by the feet hanging off the block.  So when it was cut out, the rest of the body was cut but the area below the feet was still attached to the paper.  Then I took my Paper Smooches banner die and did the same thing, making sure to keep the area by the feet hanging off the edge again.  It turned out a bit wonky, so I had to trim the banner a bit to make it look right, but I think it turned out pretty cool.

Here is a close up of what I am talking about:

I realize now that it is hard to see, but the goose is attached to the banner right behind it's heel.  Next time I'll make one that is a bit more obvious.  :)

That is all I have for today!  I'll be back tomorrow with another card I made with this sketch.  Thanks for stopping by! 

Until next time...
