Happy Friday-Eve! We're just starting to emerge back into the outdoors after being told to stay indoors last night due to severe weather here yesterday (Winds of up to 92mph struck Sheffield and my guy was on a double-decker bus! We're thanking our lucky stars people arrived home safely. That's not even mentioning the snow and rain we've had too...Crazy!). I hope you're keeping safe if you've been affected by the insane winds, blizzard-like conditions, and flooding. Spring has got to arrive sooner or later, right?
So today's card seems very appropriate with its raindrops. I promise it wasn't planned LOL! But it was planned for this week's CASE Study. It was inspired by this card from our muse, Danielle Flanders:
Check out the original post of this card here.
I took the colour scheme (sans orange), the stripes, and the die-cut cloud and heart from Danielle's creation to whip up a simple get well soon card. The longest part was waiting for the good dollop of Glossy Accents to dry on my tiny heart. :)
- The rounded corners at the top of my card are a nod to the rounded corners on Danielle's card, and also compliment the round edges of the cloud shape.
- I like to use washi tape to hold my dies in place when I need to be accurate with them. It helps if you stick the washi tape to some fabric a few times to reduce its sticky-ness. This means it won't damage the card when you peel it off.
- I ensured that my stripes were pointing towards the focal point of the card to help the design flow. I always like to think carefully when using stripes to decide which way they'll best compliment a design.
I urge you to hop across to CASE Study HQ now to take a peek at how the rest of the CASE Study DT have been inspired by Danielle's card. You won't leave disappointed!
Now I'm off to make a card filled with sunshine in the hope that will encourage spring to arrive sooner rather than later....LOL!
