I had a good time with this CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone) and I hope you’ll give it a try! Crystal and I did some Power Stamping in the Stampin’ Garage at her house and THIS CARD was our inspiration. We loved everything about it, but the only product Lou used that we had on hand were the square framelits. Never fear: creative juices were near!
- Stamps: Happiest of Days
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Tranquil Tide
- Accessories: Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, Big Shot, Squares Framelits, Petals and More Thinlits dies, Foam Adhesive Strips, Linen Thread
Lou used the Foam Adhesive Strips to elevate the DSP panel, and we agreed that it created lovely shadows. They’re a little thicker than Stampin’ Dimensionals, so the lift is greater. Each of these cards feature linen thread because I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
Same concept, different sentiment – this message is from the Soft Sayings Card Kit. I debated on adding some additional images around it, but decided I liked the clean look. If I were to make this card again, I’d choose a slightly smaller opening. The additional card stock is Pear Pizazz and Crushed Curry.
We discovered that you could layer two Square Framelits in one pass through the Big Shot to cut out a perfect frame. We then laid the smaller framelit over the opening in the frame, the DSP, and the white card base to make alignment perfect for the opening.
Our last version used a different Thinlit from the same set. The tiny flower is from the Tree Builder punch, and the sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
The frame and ink are Tangerine Tango, the leaves are Pear Pizazz, and the tiny flowers are Pool Party.
It was a lot of fun playing with the different sentiments we had available, and mixing and matching the color schemes for this gorgeous paper.
I hope you’re inspired to CASE this versatile design. If you didn’t see Lou’s original, you really must – it’s a completely different feeling and is a stunning card.
