Hi all. There is a fun challenge going on at the moment run by Kara of K and R Designs called 300 Weeks of Inspiration Challenge. She keeps a file of her favourite projects which she adds to every week called the Friday Inspiration File, and every 100 weeks she challenges us to pick a card and CASE it, so I decided to look through and found this one, made by Laurie, which you will find here.
Here is my CASEing of it.
For the card I used:
White Card Blank aproximately 6" x 6".
Piece of White Card 51/2" x 51/2".
Adirondack Stonewashed Ink.
Distress Inks - Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans.
Couture Creations Embossing Folder Compassionate.
Sue Wilson Die Orange Blossom Leaves.
Piece of White Vellum.
WOW Silver Metallic Embossing Powder.
I started by cutting the pair of leaves from the piece of white card. I then used the embossing folder, running it through my machine twice to extend the pattern a little. It isn't a repeat pattern on this folder but luckily it blends in and looks fine.
I found a strip of white card in my bits box and applied the three blue inks in stripes of colour using a blending tool, the same colour on the top and bottom and centre which was the Stonewashed darkened a bit with the Faded Jeans, and then in between with Peacock Feathers. I then attached this to the underside of the cut out leaves.
I cut a strip of white vellum wide enough to take my sentiment which I stamped and heat embossed with the silver embossing powder, and then wrapped it around the top layer before adhering this to the card.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I'll see you again soon.
