Question How to make your own card sketch?

I belong to a card stamping club and I am in charge of submitting a new card sketch every month. I would really like to make my own and I was wondering if anyone could help me learn how to do them. I have tried to hand draw them, but they never worked right. Are there any tools or short cuts that anyone knows about? I would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.

Some programs you can draw with:

Adobe Photo Elements is what I use to draw the SCS sketches.

Paint, which is found under accessories in Microsoft Windows.

Also some Word programs have a drawing feature.

Blank templates which are A2 size and a square card can be found in the master thread linked in my signature. Open those into your photo program or Paint and add lines and shapes. I don't think they'll work in the Word program.

Good Luck with your drawings.

Thanks Roxie. I just tried doing it with my Print Shop software. I have a Mac. It worked beautifully! Thank you so much for giving me the idea! That is the best thing about SCS forum. Everyone is so very helpful. By the way, I just love your sketches, but I thought it was best to use my own creativity.
