Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenge at Global Design Project which happens to be a CASE the Designer challenge. If you’re not familiar, the term to “CASE” stands for to Copy and Selectively Edit.
What inspired me about the card being cased are the happy colors and the overall layout.
Here’s what I came up with…
I used Marina Mist as the base for my card and layered it with the yummy Whisper White – yes, yummy. Stampin Up’s white cardstock is like no other.
I used the Penned & Painted Stamp Set to stamp two flowers and leaves. This stamp set is really fun to use because it’s two-step, which gives depth to the image. One of the flowers was stamped in Marina Mist, the other in Flirty Flamingo, and the leaves in Old Olive.
Next I created a little detail at the top of my card using the Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon and Thick White Baker’s Twine bow. I originally didn’t plan on adding the enamel dots, but I had a small smudge that needed to be covered. So, to finish off the card, I used enamel shapes to scattered over the card.
The sentiment comes from the Better Together Stamp Set and was stamped in Flirty Flamingo.
