This week we have free reign to CASE from the 2021 July-December Mini Catalogue. This will be our last look at this Mini Catalogue as the new 2022 January-June Mini Catalogue commences on 4 January.
I have selected the sample project above from page 54 of the Mini Catalogue for my inspiration. The frame using the Cork 12" x 12" Specialty Paper caught my eye. I think we are all pretty much over Christmas cards, so I decided to finish the year with a sneak peek of some new products from the 2022 January-June Mini Catalogue.
I started with a piece of Basic White card stock and added the Balmy Blue checked design from the new Abstract Beauty 4" x 6" Specialty Designer Paper. It is a pack of 48 sheets the perfect size for card making. I just trimmed a little from the bottom and it was ready to adhere. There are lots of fun designs and I can see that I'm going to use this one a lot. I cut my frame from the Cork Specialty Paper using two of the Stitched Rectangles Dies nested together. This paper is quite thin, so I adhered it to a piece of Crumb Cake card stock first, so it would be more robust when I popped it up. I stamped some of the spatters in Misty Moonlight ink before adhering the frame.
I used the large daffodil image from the new Daffodil Daydream stamp set, which has the coordinating Daffodil Dies to crop the images. The image was coloured with Stampin' Blends and I lightly colour the centre areas of the image with Balmy Blue, so it would blend better with the Balmy Blue background. I stamped and coloured the daffodil at the top a second time and fussy cut it and popped it over the top for extra dimension. The 'thanks' was die cut using the new Amazing Thanks Dies. I chose to use it with optional shadow to make it stand out a bit more against the cork.
For the inside, I have a Balmy Blue mat for the writing panel and a strip of the cork paper at the bottom. I've stamped and coloured the smaller Daffodil image in the Daffodil Daydream stamp set and fussy cut it on the line.
