Today’s card was inspired by a beautiful card created by Norine Borys. It was so striking, I immediately knew I needed to CASE (copy and selectively edit) her card. She had done a quite a bit of stamping to create her card, so I decided to go the exact opposite and do no stamping on my design.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, when I CASE a card, I like to use three elements from the inspiration card. Here are the elements I took from Norine’s card:
- Lots of flowers
- Diagonal stripes
- Word die sentiment
The floral paper I used at the top of the card is from the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP) from Stampin’ Up!® The striped paper is one of the Pear Pizzazz papers in the Subtles 6×6″ DSP. The stripe is actually printed to be used vertically or horizontally, but I just rotated the paper 45 degrees in my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut it en pointe to get the diagonal stripe instead.
For the sentiment, I used the thanks word die from the Well Written Dies. I adhered some of our Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock then cut out the thanks word three times. Using the adhesive sheets made it quick and easy to stack the three words on top of each to create a faux-chipboard sentiment.
To assemble the card:
- Create a top-folding card base from Whisper White Thick cardstock.
- Adhere the Petal Promenade DSP to the top part of the card base using your favorite adhesive. I used Liquid Multipurpose Glue.
- Adhere the Pear Pizzazz DSP to the bottom part of the card base.
- Wrap a piece of Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon around the card to cover the seam between the two pieces of DSP. Hide the join of the ribbon beneath where the sentiment will be on the card. Adhere the ribbon at the join using a small piece of Tear & Tape.
- Create a messy nest using the Gold Metallic Thread and adhere to the card using another small piece of Tear & Tape placed on the ribbon.
- Cut an oval from Vellum Cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies.
- Remove the backing from the bottom of the thanks word die stack and adhere it to the vellum.
- Add some dots of glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen behind the letters of the work die then adhere it to the card.
I’m entering this card in the following challenge(s):
- Stamp, Ink, Paper – the current theme is nature.
