GRS Sketch Challenge

It's sketch challenge day for the Gourmet Rubber Stamps design team, and what a fun pocket card sketch this is! There are lots of options with this layout, and it's a nice opportunity to use those larger scraps of designer paper and card stock!  

Although I normally have a stamp in mind when I begin a card, for this one I was inspired by this gorgeous designer paper.  It is so elegant and beautiful, and I especially love those gold notes on the music print, which is hidden in the pocket until the insert is removed.

The herald angel and coordinating sentiment from Season's Greetings were the obvious choice...they were stamped in Espresso Truffle ink, colored with Copic markers, and distressed with Frayed Burlap distress ink.  A festive red satin bow and a few red pearls draw attention to the tag's lacy edges and the asymmetrical fold.

Visit the GRS blog for more ideas using this sketch!  Shop for great paper-crafting supplies at i {heart} papers, where you'll also find a selection of Gourmet Rubber Stamps.
