SSSD Ladies and an explanation to others.

I belong to a Yahoo Group of swapping stamping and scrapping ladies. I am the Hostess of a number of swaps and will be putting some swap information on here for the ladies to follow and I hope the rest of you will enjoy it also. On the first of every month starting Jan 1, 2012 I will be posting 2 tutorials. One for a technique and one for a different kind of card. We have tried this in the past on the group without the tutorial and things did not go well so hope that having picture by picture instructions will make this easy and fun. Today I am going to tell you about another swap starting in January called Build a Sketch. We have 17 pieces and will be using approximately 5 of them to make a card. This month we will be using these parts. #1 is your card base. #2 is the top layer 4 x 5 1/4. # 4 is a circle 2 to 21/2 ". #15 is a rectangle 4 7/8 x 2 7/8 and #17. is a smaller rectangle 2 1/4x 7/8. Now if you need to adjust your sizes a smidge that is fine but stick to these pieces.
 Here are a few examples of what you can do with the pieces to help you design a card.

Here is my card. Hope this helps ladies. The back layer is Encaustic wax. Stamps are all by Marks Finest Papers- a Heinrich Company.
