DT Case – Corrosive Challenge #88

October 31, 2010 at 11:58 am 2 comments

Hi everyone! Whew! I made it through my first month on Janet’s Corrosive Challenge Blog Design Team. For this week, we were to case a card from a member of the Design Team. I was flipping through Michelle’s blog, *Ink*satiable Stamper (LOVE that name), and was totally blown away by her handiwork. You have GOT to check it out!! There were so many gorgeous cards to choose from – I had a hard time picking just one. Here is the card I chose to case:

I loved everything about Michelle’s card. The patterned paper is beautiful, her image was awesome and the ribbon treatment was really cool! Here is my similar, yet slightly different, case:

So, here are the things I changed:
1) the patterned paper and card stock colours
2) tree stamp and sentiment
3) one less layer under the trees
4) I added some texture to the squares under the main image with a cuttlebug embossing folder
5) I added another layer to the sentiment tag
6) omitted the rhinestones on the bottom right

Here is my recipe:
Card Stock – 110 lb. cream, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake (both SU)
Patterned Paper – My Mind’s Eye
Stamps – Lovely as a Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes (both SU)
Ink – Garden Green, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede (all SU)
Accessories – Spellbinders Labels, Argyle CB EF, Mat Pak (SU), gold satin ribbon

I hope I did Michelle’s card even a little bit of justice! I can tell you, I’ll be perusing through her blog a little longer to find other stunning cards for my own inspiration. That’s all for now! Thanks for visiting.
