CTC #476 - CASE This Sketch

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where utilise the projects within the current Stampin' Up! catalogue to inspire our own projects each week. We also invite you to join with us in the challenge each week by using this inspiration in your own creations and uploading a photo to our Facebook page.

This week we are taking inspiration from the sketch of the middle card on page 68 of the Annual Catalogue.

Here is that sketch broken down to its main elements to make it easer to CASE.  You can add whatever you like to this basic sketch whether that be DSP, die cuts or embellishments. 

I decided the Frames & Flowers Specialty DSP would be perfect for this card, I started by making a template for the card shapes from vellum so that I could decide the best way to cut the DSP.  As it turned out, for me that meant flipping the sketch, but I think it looks great this way around, what do you think?

There was minimal stamping for this card, just the sentiment from Simply Said stamped directly onto one of the DSP elements from the pack.  I raised this on Dimensionals to allow it to stand out from the card a little better.  I covered the join between the two DSP patterns with ribbon from the Petal Pink & White Diagonal Trim Combo Pack. I love how this just gives a subtle element to the card.  You can see how I have added a strip of DSP and one of the leaf elements to the inside of the card. 

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the sketch to inspire your creativity, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.

Time to hop on over and see what Andrea has created this week.

Happy Stamping
