My card today is a CASE from Sandi MacIver. I came across her card and just loved the simplicity and color. You can see Sandy's card here. I needed a card to use for a Shoe Box Swap for my Luv 2 Create Team meeting. I wanted something striking yet relatively easy to make. I wanted to have something that would be a great card for a class. Here is the card I made.
I only made a few changes to make the card my own. I loved this so much!
Start with a Thick Whisper White base measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.
Add a piece of patterned paper from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper. It measures 1 1/4 x 5 1/2. I always use my Grid Paper to help me get pieces like this straight on my card stock.
I also added the dots from the Painted Harvest stamp set on the background stamped in Lemon Lime Twist.
The focal point starts with a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock cut at 3 1/8 x 4 3/8. The Whisper White layer is 3 x 4 1/4.
Stamp the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, and Bermuda Bay. Ordinarily I wouldn't use these colors together, but they looked so good on Sandy's card. I did use the leaf stamp from Painted Harvest in the detailed outline and the solid. Add some more of the Lemon Lime Twist dots. The sentiment is from the same stamp set stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Adhere this panel with dimensionals.
The inside of the card has another saying from Painted Harvest in black. Add a few leaves in Lemon Lime Twist.
My Team loved the card, too. I think some just might use it in one of their card classes.
