The CTC crew are taking inspiration from pages 8-11 of the Sale-a-bration brochure this week. There are so many great samples in this small brochure.
You may have come from looking at the fabulous project on Mel's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.
The project I have chosen to CASE this week is the card on the right in the photo below. The 'Delicate Details' stamp set was one of my first choices as a FREE gift during this Sale-a-bration and this is my first opportunity to ink it up.
I decided to create a lacy border as shown in the sample, bending the first of the lace stamps into a semi-circle. To get the desired shape, I die cut the circle and used it as a template to bend the lace stamp into position. You can see that I also used a bit of washi tape to help keep it in place.
By stamping twice, I created the lacy circle which forms the border for the greeting on my card. I stamped it in Crumb Cake ink onto one of the Bokeh designs from the lovely 'Falling in Love' designer series paper from the Occasions Catalogue.
My card took a few twists and turns before arriving at the final result. Originally I envisaged it as a portrait card, but then decided the bow worked better with more space. So the join that should have been hidden by the ribbon is in full view at the top and bottom in my landscape card. I don't think it is too noticeable though and I didn't want to waste the beautiful 'Falling in Love' designer series paper.
You can see the detail of the lace stamp in this closeup pic. I've kept the centre circle simple, stamping the greeting from 'Butterfly Basics' in Soft Suede ink onto Very Vanilla card stock. I cropped it with one of the 'Stitched Shapes' framelits and popped it up on the Blushing Bride circle. It is trimmed with some punched flowers and pearls. The 1/4" Very Vanilla satin ribbon is new in the Occasions Catalogue and is beautifully soft and easy to work with.
For the inside, I have used some of the Crumb Cake washi from the Tasty Treats set and stamped the flower cluster from Birthday Blossoms to finish.
While I had the lace stamp in position, I decided to stamp a few more images and this is one of the other cards I made. This particular section of the Falling in Love DSP has more brown tones in it, so I changed it up a bit with a border of Very Vanilla to brighten it and then the base card of Blushing Bride. I love that the greeting I used from the 'Designer Tin of Cards' could work for a wedding or birthday card.
