Inspiration In Action CASE Contest

A Happy Monday to All!!  I trust all is well and that everyone was able to squeeze a little time to stamp into their weekend.  I sure did and happened to come across a neat little contest that Gretchen Barron is holding on her blog – found here –The idea is to pick a card/project out of the current IB&C and case it.  You can change whatever you like….BUT make sure it still bears SOME resemblance to the original project.  It sounds like a lot of fun – won’t you join in and play along with the gang?

I started with a card located in the ‘All Natural’ section on page 120.  Here is a picture of what I cased ~

                         045

And here is what I came up with ~

             042 

The things that I changed are:

  • The matting from black to Cameo Coral
  • Designed my own flower (made it more 3D) but kept the flow to the right
  • Sponged the edges on the DSP
  • The center strip between the card base and the matting is Very Vanilla with each side punched with the Eyelet Border Punch
  • My sentiment is ‘thinking of you’
  • My flatbacks are gold instead of pearl

And a closer look ~

You know I had to do the inside ~

                       039

Thank you Gretchen for providing us with a fun challenge and all my best to the lucky winner!

  • Card Stock – O. Olive, Cameo Coral(retired), V. Vanilla, Newspaper Print DSP
  • Tools – Scallop Circle, Boho Blossom, Two Step Bird, Modern Label and Eyelet Border Punches
