In case you haven't heard yet, I'm the new design team member over at Case Study challenge blog! I was so delighted when Chupa asked me to join the team, what a talented group! I love the variety of styles too. Two of my fellow teamies Christina & Amy are in the Top 15 of Gallery Idol with me too!! (Today's the last day for voting btw!) Ok, so on to the card for challenge #49. This is week 3 with fabulous muse Dawn Woleslagle, she has such a wonderful CAS style yet so elegant. Here's Dawn's wonderful card that we are CASEing this week.
I love the layout of Dawn's design with the die-cuts as the focal point, I also love the bold patterned paper with the simple band across the middle and the sweet little embellishment. I chose to CASE these elements while changing the colors, the stamps, etc. making it more...me! Here's my version!!
I used papers from Emma's Shoppe (Crate Paper), some pretty gingham ribbon layered over some crochet lace. The dotty ribbon and baker's twine are from The Ribbon Reel.
I used Spellbinders Labels 18 for the label and stamped with Very Vintage Labels 18 from Waltzingmouse Stamps in Angel Pink. The sentiment is from Say it Loud stamped in Rose Bud, I simply cut around it leaving a small border and attached with foam pads. I added a pink grosgrain bow as my embellishment.
The colors I used are from the current challenge at CR84FN. I love this color combo, it's just so cheery!!
I hope I did ok, I haven't actually CASEd that many cards, I'm hoping it will broaden my creativity!! For some more inspiration, check out how the rest of the CASE study DT interpreted Dawn's beautiful card.
