Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.
To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues (CATTY).
This week, we are CASEING an Easter project from either our Annual Catalogue or the Mini Catalogue. I've taken my inspiration from the middle card in the image above - and CASED the entire layout.
My starting point for colours comes from my religious Easter experience, and the colours of Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of our Lord, which are usually white and gold in my church.
I've mimicked the brickwork background, the specialty paper across the centre and the wreath with the greeting centred. I've used the Layering Circles dies to create the wreath shape, and then used the mistletoe image from the Christmas Layers dies for the leafery. The flowers on the original have been changed to butterflies from the Brilliant Wings dies which represent transformation which is what I believer Easter is all about.
For the inside of the card I repeated the Brick and Mortar embossing along with some more of the gorgeous Golden Garden acetate and another gold foil butterfly. The greetings on the front and inside come from the Timeless Tulip stamp set and I think they work perfectly.
The final touch is a bunch of metallic pearls around the wreath. I do love the gold and white colouring.
