Three Cards with One Sketch

This simple card sketch can easily be adjusted to fit a variety of both cards and card themes.

I used the single sketch to create my three cards shown here - all in various sizes and formats. The sketch design uses the Ultra Shape Xpress tool as a fundamental element, and also makes it super-simple to work in your favorite Fiskars border punches. Finally, the wide range of Fiskars acrylic stamps are the perfect way to add the appropriate greeting to any card that you may find a need for!
