I've been admiring a card in the Occasions Catalog since it came out. I had purchased all the supplies and got ready to re-create it for my grandson. And then something happened! I realized that I had used the designer series paper for my January card clubs and only had one piece left! Uh-oh...need to be very careful. This is the card I wanted to make (the one with the star, on the left):
I was trying so hard to get that yellow background right.
And I blew it!
Yes, I miscalculated my trimming and made it too small...ARGH!
So back to the drawing board.
I had another piece of the Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack, so I ended up doing something different:
When you CASE a card, it doesn't always mean you copy it exactly. In this case the layout was nearly identical, but there are subtle differences. Can you spot them?
First, I stamped my Very Vanilla base using the constellation stamp from Going Global and using Delightful Dijon ink. Then I cut my black constellation DSP and added it to my card front.
The stamp was inked with Archival Basic Black ink; once stamped it was punched using the 1" circle punch. And there's a time strip of Silver Glimmer Paper with notched ends (Banner punch).
Try a CASE - and then add your own ideas to make it an entirely new card!
