Stamptastic Friends November Blog Hop CASE A Stamptastic Friend

Welcome to the Stamptastic Friends November Blog Hop and this month we are CASEing a Stamptastic Friend. In case you are not familiar with the term CASE, it stands for Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit, and it's a wonderful way to spark your creativity. Our Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas inspired by one our fellow Stamptastic friends that will hopefully help inspire you to give it a try. 
For my card design, I decided to CASE my friend, Ginny Harrell, and create a beautiful Winter themed card design based on the card she created in this blog post here
I love the simple layout of this beautiful card design and thought it would be perfect for the idea that I had in mind. My favorite color is blue, so I had fun picking out two blues that I thought would look perfect together for my design. To CASE Ginny's card, I chose to use the layout, textured background and emboss resist technique to create my card. I hope you enjoy what I came up with for my CASE.

I had so much fun CASEing Ginny's beautiful card design and chose a Winter Wonderland theme for my card. When I think of Winter, I think of snowy days and pretty snowflakes. For the background of my card front, I chose the Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder to add some subtle detailed texture to the design. I love heat embossing, so I had to recreate the emboss resist technique that Ginny used to creat my focal panel. I chose the snowflake images from the Beary Cute stamp set and heat embossed them with Clear embossing powder. Using a Blending Brush, I applied Azure Afternoon and Blueberry Bushel Classic inks to help bring out the detail in the embossed snowflakes to make them pop. I layered the focal panel onto a layer of Basic White cardstock and then attached it to the strip of Blueberry Bushel cardstock to frame the main design. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image from the Very Best Occasions stamp set onto a Blueberry Bushel label die cut with the Nested Essentials Dies. I added a piece of the pretty White Iridescent Ribbon to the back of the sentiment label to help step up the design and added three snowflakes that I die cut with the Chic Dies to complete the card. For a touch of bling, I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the centers of the snowflakes. I love how this card design turned out and I hope I did justice to Ginny's beautiful card. It was the perfect inspiration.
