This card is a product of the Featured Stamper’s Challenge. It is one of my favorite challenges, but sadly it is the one that I often don’t have time to complete. I love to get inspiration from other stampers and CASE a card to make it my own. Sometimes my creations are similar to the original pieces of art, other times they are completely different. This one falls into the similar catergory. I chose to CASE this card from denidill’s gallery. I kept the color scheme and basic layout. I did change it from a square card to a standard A-2 card. I did end up changing a lot of items though. For instance I used the new Fresh Cuts stamp set. I have been using that one a lot lately and it stays right on my table. If I put it away I am often reaching for it later. I added paper piercing around the main image. I find myself doing that a lot. It’s like I can’t make a card without poking holes in it.
The pressing question in the comments on this card was how did I make that bow? Well I will try to get a video tutorial up on how I do it and when you see how simple it is you will be amazed! I used a similar bow on my Blog Candy notebook too. To dress it up a bit more I added 2 small half pearls from the Pretties kit.
Be on the look out for a video tutorial, hopefully later today.
