Casing the Catalogue
The current Occasions Catalogue has some really gorgeous card examples to give you and me lots of ideas for creating our own cards. I really loved the example on page 18 which uses the line image from the Painted Petals stamp set and thought I would create my own version. It’s really simple to get the look right because there is a “You can make it” box which gives you the information on what has been used to create the card.
I added the line image to Whisper White card using Sahara Sand, Blackberry Bliss, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight. My stamp set is photo-polymer and being able to see through the image made it super simple to place the lines exactly where I wanted them. I attached my stamped card to Blackberry Bliss card and then scored and folded Whisper White. I decided to stamp the small flower image using Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight inks onto Whisper White card and then punch it using the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch. I added a Blackberry Bliss 2″ Circle behind the stamped circle before attaching it to the card front using dimensionals.
Inside the card, I stamped the same flower image across the bottom of Whisper White card to create a border, cute isn’t it? I stamped the greeting which also comes from the Painted Petals stamp set using Blackberry bliss ink. The stamped Whisper White is attached to Blackberry Bliss card before being attached to the inside of the card.
This card was so easy to make and looks really fantastic. So, if you are like me, and get stuck for an idea, have a look in your catalogue(s) and CASE an example.
Bye for now,
