January 29, 2023

This week we are CASE-ing a project from the Country Floral Lane Suite on pages 8-11 of the 2023 January-April Mini Catalogue. I love the pretty pastels in both the Country Gingham and Country Floral Lane paper packs.
I've selected the project in the photo above for my inspiration this week. I like the use of the negative for the LOVE and making it the focal point of the card.
I started with a small panel of Balmy Blue card stock and added Foam Adhesive Sheet to the back. The letters from the Alphabet À La Mode Dies were positioned and held in place with sticky note before die cutting. You get two of the 'L' in the set of dies which is really helpful. In a stroke of luck, the die cut panel was the perfect size to fit evenly on the red heart design from the Country Floral Lane DSP. I liked the look of the hearts framing the greeting, so I decided to add a piece of Sweet Sorbet card stock to the back of the die cut panel.
The heart was fussy cut from the Country Floral Lane DSP after adding a scrap of Basic White to the back to give it more body. I popped up the heart and slipped the fussy cut leaves underneath. The 'friend' sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set was stamped in black, fussy cut and popped up over the heart and I finished with a small bow in white Baker's Twine. I added a white border to the heart panel and then adhered it to the card base that I had covered with the blue plaid design from the Country Gingham DSP. A trio of gold sequins from the Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins were the finishing touch.
For the inside, I have a Balmy Blue mat for the writing panel and I added a strip of the heart DSP down the right side. I fussy cut the sweet blue bike from the Country Floral Lane DSP and added in the corner.
I hope you like my sweet friendship card!
