Using up the patterned paper...(little by little!)


Woop, woop for Friday-Eve! Ready for a bit of studying? Studying CASE Study stylee of course!

Today's card is inspired by this fabulous creation from our muse, Elena. Isn't it the sweetest?

I was inspired by a number of things on Elena's project that I incorporated into my project.
  • The use of patterned paper (any excuse to try and use some of the huge pile of the stuff I'm hoarding keeping!) 
  • The bow (mine comes in the form of a twine bow) 
  • The stitching around the outside of the larger doll (Mine is hand-drawn. Me and my sewing machine have issues...!)
  • Finally, the curved panels of card for the dolls' hair and shawl. 
It's strange what inspires us sometimes, but I was especially fixated on those curved shapes! :)

tips and tricks

  • In order to create the curved panels of patterned paper, I die cut circles from patterned paper and placed them behind the aperture in the blue panel of paper. Easy!
  • When working with patterned paper, it's sooooooo much easier to work with various papers from the same collection for the ultimate colour coordination.
  • Once again, the twine here was given the Glossy Accents treatment to make it stay in place. It works a treat and trust me: that twine isn't going anywhere! Ha!
As always, we'd love to see you be inspired by Elena's project and get creative. Be sure to share what you create with us of course!

Please be sure to check out what the rest of the super-duper CASE Study DT whipped up for your viewing pleasure. You won't be disappointed - promise! :D
