Global Design Project #72 | Crazy About You

Did you think I’d missed the Global Design Project this week? As if I would….. ok, so I almost did! but this CASE the designer challenge has been on my mind all week. I think I have made about 10 cards in my head, but only one out of actually paper (not that it is anything like what I had planned!)

How fabulous is this card from Krista Frattin, very pretty. The dotty background has been a feature of every single card I have imagined for this challenge this week, but how to execute this has changed a few times. Krista used one of the now retired dotty glassine bags, and I almost followed suit because I have a few of this left in my stash. But change my mind, opting to stamp with Whisper White Craft Ink into Vellum instead.

I had ideas of die cutting, and squares… and then I found my punch drawer instead! Although the circle is die cut using the Layering Circles dies. I intitially wasn’t aiming to use Krista’s colour combination, opting to use her card as a sketch, but I am pushing myself to make this a challenge at the moment, and her colours weren’t a combination I have used… So I did it! Calypso Coral, Cucumber Crush, Sahara Sand and Basic Black

I had also considered heat embossing and all kinds of things for this sentiment. But you know, sometimes simple is better, and so stamped in Basic Black onto Whisper White and cut out by hand won out this time.

Thanks for checking out my blog today. I hope to see you here again soon
