Case Study Challenge

For CASE Study Challenge Design Team Call

Hello everybody,
After a week’s break I sat down to make a card for CASE Study Design Team Challenge Call. The challenge is to create a paper crafting project inspired by your own personal ‘Muse’. My personal ‘Muse’ is Iwona Palamountain (Chupa) herself. This card she made some time ago is still my personal favourite. 
I have no words to describe how much I love this card. One layer, gorgeous, perfectly balanced, looks like printed not hand made. Perfect in all ways. My jaws dropped when I saw it for the first time. This is actually a postcard, Iwona had made. I wanted to CASE this card for a long time. I took this design team call as the opportunity to CASE this gorgeous card. Here is my take.
Cherished Friend
My card base is cream card stock. I stamped the images from Flourishes Stamp set called Bloom’ Aussie Floral and coloured in copics. Then sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I then ran the card front through the cuttlebug using a PTI impression plate to get some texture. I also brushed the berries with Wink of Stella shimmer pen. The sentiment is from a stamp set called Cherished from The Craft’s Meow. So sad this company closed because they had some beautiful stamp sets. I was so lucky to design for them. I stamped the smaller elaborate sentiment three times to create a border on the bottom of the card front. The larger sentiment is stamped on a strip of card stock which is trimmed to get the fish tail banner ends. Then sponged with distress ink. This sentiment strip is mounted using foam adhesives. Finally I have added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh Nature Mix Sequins. This Nature Mix sequins has the perfect coloured sequins for my card.
I am very happy with the way my CASE card turned out. It is always tricky to CASE a gorgeous card. Original is the best. But I like mine as well 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity, Iwona.

Thanks for stopping by!
