Challenge #6 – Follow our sketch

23 Jan

Hello, and welcome to a new Young Crafters Unite challenge! We hope you will be able to join us in this challenge =) Now, let’s get to announcing this months challenge!


This month’s challenge

This time, we want you to make cards using this sketch:

You can make your card with whatever theme, colors, images and techniques you want. All we ask is that you base the layout of your card on the sketch.  We look forward to seeing how you use the sketch on your card =)


Awesome Design Team contributions

We are so lucky to have a great design team to give you lots of inspiration for this fun challenge. Here are their amazing creations for this challenge:

Chari Moss –


Jen Rzasa –

Jess Larsen –

Jess has been feeling a little under the weather lately, and so she has not been able to make a card for this challenge.


Paulina Nakamura –

Paulina has been without power for the last few days, and because of that she has not been able to make a card for this challenge.


Britta Swiderski –

*Message from Britta: You rock, YCUers! Thanks for being so awesome and to the DT (and of course Marie) for working so hard and diligently to keep everything running while I’m traveling. You gals are the best!*

Marie Forberg –
