Today my card is inspired by the Global Design Project 096
CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit
Remember that when you CASE a project you can take what you like from the design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set – the colors, the layout, the flowers, whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own. I like the subtle colors and the simple design, so I adapted it for a thank you card I need to send to a fisher person.
All supplies are Stampin’ Up!.
I began with a Pool Party card base and a piece of the retired By the Shore DSP that looks like water. I could have used the embossing folder, and did consider it, but I like this paper. For the largest square I cut a piece of Pool Party card stock with the largest Layering Squares die. Using the second largest die I cut a Very Vanilla square and adhered it to the larger square.
The topmost square is the third largest size die and cut of Pool Party. The Anchor, fish and sentiment are stamped on Very Vanilla in Pacific Point from the Seaside Shore stamp set and fussy cut with my Paper Snips scissors.
The anchor is attached with Mini Stampin’ dimensionals and the fish is liquid glued to the square. The square is then adhered to the Very Vanilla square with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the ‘Ahoy There’ on Very Vanilla and was going to leave it as a banner, but decided it looked better fussy cut. It is glued just below the largest square.
This finishes the front of the card.
The inside is a panel of Very Vanilla and stamped with fish, bubbles and seaweed in Pool Party Classic Stampin’ pad.
After first stamping the seaweed, I stamped one on a Post-it Note to make a mask and fussy cut it. I laid the mask over the seaweed to stamp the fish so it would look like they are swimming in among the weeds. I then added the bubbles, sometimes not re-inking. There was no rhyme nor reason to this, just whatever struck me.
The sentiment, from the One Big Meaning stamp set, is stamped in Pacific Point. The panel was then glued into the card base.
For the Medium Very Vanilla envelope, I stamped an anchor in the front corner and ‘Ahoy There’ on the flap, both in Pacific Point.
I hope you like this Global Design Project 096 inspired card as much as I enjoyed making it.
