The challenge at Late Night Stampers this week is to CASE (copy and share everything) something from Pinterest. Now I love Pinterest but so far haven’t made anything that I have pinned. So this was a great opportunity to do so. I found this gorgeous card from Kingston mama Crafts here on Pinterest or if you don’t have an account then here on her blog. I must give a warning here though that Pinterest can become obsessive, there are so many ideas pinned there, I could spend all day – if only I had the time.
Anyway this is my version. I embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock on the bottom 2/3rds using the Finial Press Embossing Folder. I wrapped this piece just above the embossing using Rose Red 1/2″ Seam Binding. I stamped the “happy birthday wishes” from the Petite Pairs stamp set in the top right hand corner using Elegant Eggplant ink. I cut two sets of leaves from Always Artichoke card stock using the Little Leaves Sizzlit and attached them over the ribbon on the left hand side. I punched two sets of flowers from Elegant Eggplant card stock using the Boho Blossom punch. I used the back of my Paper Piercer and the Mat Pack to make the flowers “cup” a little in the middle. I attached the flowers to each other and to the card front using Mini Glue Dots. The last thing was to add some Basic Pearls to the centre of each of the flowers.
I hope that my CASE does justice to the beautiful card that inspired it. What do you think? How does it compare?
Bye for now, Kris.
