New At SU March Blog Hop CASE the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog

Welcome to the New at SU March Blog Hop as we CASE the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog using products from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. What is CASE? It stands for Copy And Share Everything and is simply a way to help spark your creativity by using a project to help provide you with a map to create your own beautiful creations. Whether you choose to copy the design exactly or use the layout, the colors, the stamp set or any combination, it is a great starting point to help you get creative.
For my card design, I chose to CASE the above card design from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, which can be found on page 51. This card design uses the Layering Diorama Dies with the Sailing Home stamp set and coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies. For my card, I have chosen to use products from the New Horizons Suite from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog with the Layering Diorama Dies. 
For my card design, I decided to switch it from portrait to landscape and instead of an ocean theme, I chose to showcase the mountains. For the background, I used one of the woodgrain designs from the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper. The Layering Diorama Dies worked perfectly for the opening and I created two layers using the 3rd and 4th largest dies. I love the texture and layers of this design and I think it would work well for a variety of occasions.

Just like the original card design from the Annual Catalog, I chose to use the Layering Diorama Dies to create the opening for my card design. I liked the way it looked like a window to a scene outside. For my design, I chose to use the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my main background design and I layered it with a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I chose to use two different sizes of the dies to create a framed look for scene inside. I used a piece of the New Horizons Designer Series Paper to create the background scene and attached it to the center of the Basic Gray card base. I added one of Misty Moonlight mountain die cuts to the designer series paper, lining it up along the center of the design. I attached the layered card front over the top of the background using Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up and give it dimension. I layered the snow die cut layer over the second Misty Moonlight mountain die cut and added it to the card front with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals so that it goes across the opening and slightly offset from the background die cut. I attached the Garden Green grass and one of the Pear Pizzazz grass to the inside of the bottom of the frame to create the foreground of the scene. I punched out a tag using the Tailored Tag Punch from Basic White cardstock and stamped the woodgrain image with Misty Moonlight Classic ink(stamping off once) several times to create the background design on the tag. I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver Embossing Powder and sponged the edges with Misty Moonlight Classic ink using a Sponge Dauber. I attached the {ear Pizzazz grass to the left side of the card front, towards the bottom and then added the sentiment to the bottom of the card front so that it overlaps the opening, using Stampin' Dimensionals. To embellish the card, I added several of the Pebbles Enamel Shapes on either side of the sentiment tag to complete the design. This card design reminds me of the view of the Rocky Mountains that I see each day and I love the softness of the background created by the designer series paper. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to try CASEing to create your own beautiful card designs.
