This week at Less is More, we've been challenged to CASE (copy and steal everything) either Chrissie's card or Jen's card. I couldn't decide so, I CASEd both of them!
Here's my take on this week's challenge:
I think this first card is my favorite this week. This card is a CASE of Chrissie's card. I was happy to see her card this week, as I've made several of these cards using this technique during the past couple of week, and I think I've got a good system going now. When I stamp my letters, I cover the stamped image on the card with a piece of acetate, lightly adhere my letters where I want them to be on the card, then stamp them again. Using the acetate helps me be able to see where I'm stamping. Super cool technique. I used my new stamp from HA for the background. That think is huge...but SO pretty! I cut the letters for celebrate out with the Cameo four times, then stamped the top layer and adhered all the other layers behind that before adhering to the card. I find it easier to cut out multiple letters than to try to get pop dots cut small enough.
This card is a CASE of Jen's card. I CASEd the design and the paper piercing. I have a sister-in-law who will soon turn 65...and I thought this would be perfect for her birthday. I used a dark blue card stock under the white panel with the pierced edges. I made a tag using a punch to cut each end, then scored a couple of lines across the long edges and added some piercing to the tag. The sentiment was stamped in navy and embossed with clear EP. I cut a banner from the blue card stock to layer under the tag.
For this card I used a stamp that was in two parts...you stamped the stems then added the blooms. I cut the letters with the Cameo and adhered them to the card with pop dots. The pink is SO not that bright IRL...must be camera trickery! Popped the panel on a white card base and rounded all the corners.
This card is probably my least favorite. I made it a combination of both Chrissie's card and Jen's card. Technique from Chrissie and paper piercing from Jen. I think it's probably the colors that I'm not crazy about. I seem to be stuck on pink this week. Maybe it would have been better in another color. The flourish is from PTI, I cut the word "birthday" with my Cameo (I welded the letters together this time...makes it much easier to keep straight!). Rounded the corners...done!
Which card is your favorite this week?
