Stamping With Friends November Blog Hop CASEing A Demonstrator

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends November Blog Hop with our challenge to "CASE a Demonstrator". What is CASE? It stands for Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit, and is basically a great way to get inspiration when you are creating your own projects. Projects created by Stampin' Up! Demonstrators can provide you with amazing ideas to help spark your creativity. Visit with our Design Team members as they share their ideas and projects to help you get started. 
The hardest part about today's blog hop project, was choosing which Stampin' Up! Demonstrator to CASE. There are so many wonderful, talented demonstrators from around the world that inspire me on a daily basis, and I could have chosen anyone of them for today's project. In the end, I discovered this beautiful Christmas card designed by Australian Demonstrator, Catherine Proctor, and I just knew it was the one I wanted to CASE for this blog hop. You can click here to see Catherine's original post.
For my card design, I chose to use the layout from the original card design to create a bright and cheerful Thank You card. For the colors, I used Starry Sky, Orchid Oasis, Tahitian Tide and Sweet Sorbet from the 2022-2024 In Colors and I love the variety of patterns in the 2022-2024 In Colors 6"x6" Designer Series Paper that helps to add wonderful texture to the design. This beautiful clean and simple card would work well as a masculine Thank You Card to show your appreciation.

To create my version of Catherine's card, I chose to use three of the In Colors for the strips to create the background design. I love that the tone on tone patterns add subtle texture to the card front without being overwhelming. For the Basic White cardstock, I wanted to add more texture to the card front, so I embossed it using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I arranged the strips and adhered them to the card front in a staggered arrangement similar to the original card design. For the sentiment, I chose to use the Thanks die cuts using the Amazing Thanks Dies. The contrast between the Sweet Sorbet and Starry Sky layers really makes it pop against the card front background and coordinating with the Sweet Sorbet card base. The stamped sentiment from the Wildlife Wonder stamp set, was stamped with Sweet Sorbet Classic ink onto a Basic White Stitched Rectangle. I attached both sentiments using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to the card front to add some depth and dimension to the design. To finish off the design, I added some Sweet Sorbet and Orchid Oasis Matte Decorative Dots to the card front. I love how this card design turned out and how I was able to take the layout from Catherine's beautiful Christmas card and transform it into this wonderful thank you card.
