It's Just in Case Thursday, the day where Patsy and I share a card we've CASED from one of our current publications. Sometimes we copy it exactly and sometimes we change the stamp set, embellishment and/or colours.
CASE = Copy and Selectively Edit
Today's CASE is based on a card using the Notes of Kindness Card Kit featured on page 202 of the Annual Catalogue. I changed up the colours and stamp set but kept the layout the same. I find when I look at the structure and components of a card made by one of our Concept Artists at Stampin' Up! it's easier to swap out the elements.
The Free As a Bird Cling Stamp Set and coordinating Stitched Nested Labels Dies are part of the Bird Ballad Suite on pages 90-92 in the Annual Catalogue. Patsy and I are featuring the whole suite in our Free card program for August.
If you'd like to make my card here's all the details:
- Whisper White Thick – 8 1/2" x 5 1/4"; score at 4 1/4"
- Balmy Blue – 3 1/2" x 1"
- Basic Black – 3" x 1 1/2"
