Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #569 Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  We are again doing a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) of the catalog.  Today we CASE a card from page 132 of the Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.


I'm just going to admit that when I added my card to the group, I saw that another card looked very much like mine.  I started to do another card, but with holidays and other stuff, I just didn't have the time.  We had similar ideas and that's fine.  If you really look, you'll see a few differences.

The card on page 132 is most white with a cut out from a piece of designer paper.  In fact, there is a little note near the card that speaks about cutting out flowers from SU's pretty designer papers.  Have you noticed the little tips spread throughout the catalog?  They are neat!  I decided t ouse the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I hadn't used it yet.

For this paper, I needed to use Very Vanilla.  For the base I used Thick Very Vanilla that is cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Very Vanilla that is 3 3/4 x 5.  Use the Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder.  Use the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate with this folder.  It works perfectly with the designer paper.  Adhere this layer directly to the card base.

Now simply pick out a group of flowers from the Mosaic Mood paper and cut away.  I wanted to fill up most of the space.  That's why I picked that group of flowers.  They were also near the edge of the paper so I wouldn't waste much paper.

The sample had ribbon behind the flowers.  I chose to use the Crushed Curry Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  You'll have to look closely, but there is a little bee on one of the flowers.  I used 2 pieces of ribbon about 5" long.

The sample used a large word across the center of the card on vellum.  I decided to leave out the vellum, but use the Well Written Dies for the word birthday.  I chose to use the Garden Green.  It's the same color as the leaves.  The word Happy is stamped in Terracotta Tile ink on a 1/2" of Very Vanilla.  Trim and add above the birthday.  The Well Said bundle is a great addition to any craft room!

For the inside of the card, I cut another flower, a butterfly, and a bee from the Mosaic Mood Specialty paper.  The saying, stamped in Terracotta Tile is from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set.

Using a sample in the catalog is a great way come up with your own ideas.  I used this technique when my mojo takes a vacation!
