They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Well today I am going to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) a fellow designer. This time a card made by Dawn caught my eye. Check out her card first:
I love so much about this card. I actually want to make it exactly as is, but I needed an anniversary card. So I decided to just pull certain elements from it, especially the Bloomin' Heart thinlit die, the banners and the metallic accents. Here is my card:
I also used some patterned paper for that beautiful heart. And I did do some embossing, but instead of using my Big Shot, I heat embossed my sentiment. Here are some close ups:
I put the heart die cut into some Whisper White which already had a heart cut out of it. I saw this technique on Pinterest and loved how it looked!
Here is a close up of the sentiment. I used the Banner Triple Punch here. See that pretty Polka Dot paper in silver? It can be found in the Neutrals Color Collection DSP stack, gold and silver sheets! I also added some silver thread underneath the sentiment and some candy and enamel dots along with some rhinestones.
With such a special card, I needed to make a special envelope. I grabbed a sheet of the Birthday Bouquet DSP. I love the combo of Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride with some silver accents.
I love how Dawn's card gave me a great springboard to make this special anniversary card. Head back over to SSI to see how some of the other Design Team members CASE'd each other!
