April 1-2-3 Cards

by - Monday, April 10, 2017

Hi friends! I'm back with a new 1-2-3 card design for you for April! Thank you for leaving your comments last month - I love hearing from you, and I'm glad you are enjoying the designs. These 1-2-3 Cards can be made quickly and easily with 1 Sentiment2 Paper Shapes and 3 Embellishments. Easy, fast and fun!

This month I'm using paper and flower embellishments from Creative Memories Denim Blues collection, as well as a cute little "Hello" embellishment from their Woodland Whimsy Embellishment pack. It's fun to mix collections! Of course these designs are so versatile you can use whatever paper and coordinating embellishments you have, and can customize them for any occasion.

Each month I provide you with a FREE printable handout that shows the card sketch in both vertical and horizontal formats, gives you the measurements of the paper shapes, and includes a picture of two sample cards for inspiration. 

Each month I also make a fun little video showing you how to put the cards together, AND offer you a chance to WIN a card kit! All you have to do to win is leave a comment at the end of the blog post or under the video on my YouTube Channel or both! At the end of each month I'll draw a random name from all the comments on both sites and send the lucky winner a kit to create both the cards that were featured that month! 

So put your feet up for the next six-and-a-half minutes and watch how fast these cards come together!

What occasion do you think you might use this month's design for? I'd LOVE to see what you type of card make using the sketches - besides commenting for your chance to win, please share a pic of your cards on my Facebook group to show us how YOU used the sketch! 

Don't forget to click here to download your copy of the handout with the sketch and dimensions so you can make your own, and leave a comment here and/or under the video on my YouTube Channel to be entered for a chance to win! (Winner will be randomly chosen from all comments and announced May 1st!)

Update May 4th 2017: 

After entering the names of those who added a comment here or on the YouTube channel, I used Random Picker to generate the winner*!
