Thursday is CASE Study day. I like being able to create from inspiration instead of a sketch. I tend to be too compliant with sketches...and feel bad when I don't do as I'm told. That's Catholic school education for you! ;-)
This week's CASE Study Challenge #73 is about negative die-cutting and we are encouraged to be inspired b Jen Rzasa's card shown here. I love the simplicity of this card, white CS, no fussy embellishments, simply gorgeous.
Here's my take on this week's brief. No patterned papers on the card front in an attempt to emulate Jan's clean look...without much success. Can't say I didn't try!
|The card base is pale pearlescent green. The image is from a stamp set that came free with the Jan2012 issue (#100) of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. I used Spellbinders Classic Scallop Circle Nestabilities to create the window and did some stitching to frame the card.|
|I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the butterfly and adhered it to the CS with pop dots.|
|Finally an aubergine seam-binding bow to complete the card.|
|On the inside, I layered the the white SC on some green paper from Basic Grey's "Sweet Threads" 6x6 pack, stitched around and applied a strip of dark green CS, which I punched using X-Cut's Leafy Lace Decorative Border Punch.|
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you at my next post!
