Happy Friday-Eve! Ready for the weekend? Ready to see something a little (or way out) of my comfort zone? Well buckle your seatbelts because here it is, and it comes courtesy of this week's CASE Study.
I can't even describe the creative process for today's card. All I can say is that it started right here with this beautiful card from our muse, Danielle Flanders:
Check out the original post of this card here.
I'm not a pastel lovin' girly-girl, but I do like to stretch myself every now and again. Danielle's card gave me the perfect chance to just play and see what I ended up with.
- The tiny banner was created by stamping a patterned Christmas tree from Clearly Besotted Stamps' Modern Christmas stamp set. I used pigment ink and heat set it to be sure it wouldn't smear everywhere. Always check if an ink is suitable for vellum before deciding you need to use it!
- Brads. Why not? We've all got a stash of 'em. I made mine sparkle by covering them in transparent fine glitter. :)
- I die cut the 'happy' from white cardstock and coloured it with a Promarker to match the colour scheme of the card. Great tip if you don't have a certain coloured card available but a ton of marker pens!
- The silver, sparkly strip is a random scrap I found on my desk that I thought would look nice (yup, just piling on those scraps LOL!). I always like to keep my scraps on hand; you never know when their destiny will call. *wink*
For some seriously fabulous inspiration, please pop across to CASE Study HQ and see what the rest of the design team created. Oh, and be sure to play along with us too and let Danielle's card take YOU on a creative adventure...
Right, I must dash as I'm visiting friends for lunch today for a much over-due catch up. Cake may be on the menu. Yummy! *wink*
Note: The patterned paper, brads and tiny stars are from stash that is soooooo old that I've not a clue where I purchased it from. Sorry! However, I've added some sparkly brads that are very similar to the ones I've used. :)
