CASE Study Challenge #199

Written by: iwona    20 Comments

It’s time for a second week with Shari Carroll, wahoo! I love the card we’re serving for this challenge, clever and striking. Loved from the moment I first saw it two years ago. With the craze for die-cutting that the paper crafting world is experiencing right now, I think this one’s going to be popular.

I didn’t try too hard to be original. I knew I wanted to try the same technique but with a different die. What I didn’t see coming at first, is that I’m going to grab the paper from the same (old!) paper pad – Bo Bunny‘s Country Garden. The die is Full Card Hexagons from Simon Says and I cut it in white cardstock, and backed the assembled piece with a layer of vellum, as opposed to cardstock in the inspiration card. It muted further down the subtle yellow of PTI‘s Lemon Tart CS.

I added a few perfectly colouristically coordinated accents – a couple of butterflies and sentiment die cut from Kaisercraft‘s Curiosity collectables, and Coral Sparklets (also from Kaisercraft)

I’m sharing this card with Virginia’s View Challenge #5 – Die Cutting.

  1. OH this was my most favorite card this week at CASE! Love how you incorporated the butterflies in the base and then added more on top – drop dead gorgeous!!

  2. So pretty! Fantastic dimension from the butterflies and where the cut outs are, love the stamping of the inset hexagons too.

Your comments make my day!
