I really enjoy CASEing a fellow designers card and this month is even more exciting because this particular card maker is someone I admire immensely!!
Yes, thats right, Therese Calvird of Lost in Paper is our Guest Designer. And we are so lucky to be CASEing one of her cards!! Therese is on many design teams, her colouring skills are out of this world and she is a wonderful person as well....she's the whole package!! So its wonderful to have her with us this month.
I loved the design of Therese's card so much, I pretty much went with the same layout and colours, with the odd tweak here and there:
I started off by cutting a panel of white CS slightly smaller than the card front. I die-cut the flower from it and glued a piece of clear acetate behind the hole. This gave me somewhere to adhere the white flower on too. I glued a piece of patterned paper to the card front and popped the panel up on foam tape over-top, so it could be seen thru the flower.
The 'love' was die-cut 3x from white CS, glued together and then coloured with Distress Ink 'Worn Lipstick' using my mini-blending tool. I adhered this to the card, along with the rest of the sentiment and some co-ordinating sequins. I hope Therese likes it!!
The 'rose' and 'love' dies are from Paper Smooches. The 'sending' sentiment is from Waffle Flower 'Balloon Messages'. The sequins are from Neat and Tangled.
I have four challenges I would like to enter:
