Well today is part 4 of card week over at Sketch Support and we are almost to the end of January's sketch week for cards.  I'm very excited that another one of my cards was featured on the blog today.   This is the same sketch that I used for the cupcake card in my prior post.  I just took this to another level. 

Here is what I created:

 Thank You by Christina HoffmanSupply list - Patterned paper: BasicGrey; Flowers and stems: BasicGrey; Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink (chestnut roan); Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; Floss: DMC; Sketch: Allison Davis, Sketch Support and Scrapbook Generation


Variation #1 – I cut my card down from 8 x 7 ½ to 8 x 7.

Variation #2 – Instead of a solid background I used two coordinating patterned papers.

Variation #3 – I also added a 1 inch strip to the bottom of the card along with a journaling tag. I opted to hand write my message.

Variation #4 - I used flowers and stems in place of the large circles.

Variation #5 - I also chalked and hand stitched around a few of the flowers and stacked smaller flowers on the larger ones with pop dots to give it more depth.

Don't forget that there is an awesome drawing for some Basic Grey products going on over at Sketch Support. So hurry up and get signed up!! And Good Luck!!!!


  1. Hey Christina, yeah I am the guest designer/diaper cake person. I wanted to tell you what happened at the baby shower today - there were 3 diaper cakes! The first time I ever even heard of one was when I saw your blog, I had no idea they were all the rage. The other two were basically diapers tied with ribbons, but I thought it was funny there were three. Thanks for your kind words on my cards, I was nervous having it posted since I wrote waaaaaaay too much (and it will be also with the other three sketches, sigh). I love your cards too, especially the sweet cupcake one. Take care!

  2. Hey Christina. Your second card is beautiful too.

  3. Thank you Carolyn!

    Michelle, I can't believe there were 3 diaper cakes! Yikes! I know yours was the best! I can't wait to see what else you share with us this month. And thank you for the compliment on my cards. I too was nervous about posting them. I thinking I'm getting better about it now though.
