Sometimes our mojo needs a little help, or maybe a lot of help. Our catalogs, brochures, and magazines (for demos) are a great source of ideas. Today's card was CASED (Copy and Share Everything) from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure. The card that was my inspiration is found on page 5 of the first SAB brochure, and it uses Heartfelt Blooms.
Warning! There is some fussy cutting involved! Just take your time. You can do it!
Start with a card base of Pool Party 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in the middle. The next layer is Whisper White measuring 3 3/4 x 5.
The next layer is Pool Party again measuring 3 5/8 x 4 7/8. Using your Big Shot run this through with the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This is one of those thick embossing folders. You'll only need 1 of the plastic plates. It's so pretty!
The bit of patterned paper is from the Tutti Frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack. It is cut to 3/4 x 2 1/2. The Whisper White piece is 1 1/2 x 2 1/2. Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink. Notch the end using the Tailored Tag Punch! Adhere these two pieces to the card front.
You'll need to stamp 2 of the flower stamp in Berry Burst and 2 in Old Olive of the leaves. Cut out the parts that you need. I glued most of the pieces to the card. The daisy in the center is on dimensionals. Just arrange to please you.
The inside of the card is kind of plain. I could have cut out more flowers. I chose not to do so.
I was crunched for time to come up with a card so CASEing a card was just the right answer for me this time. Usually we change up a little something to make it your own. I changed a bit, but the inspiration was just what I needed.
