Diva Dare A La Andrea
I decided to CASE another Diva :) Andrea is a blogging buddy of mine with a fabulous wit and gorgeous card making style. Her soft colour palette and use of layers and punches are amazing. So, what did I do? I chose this card which isn't her signature style! It had fewer layers and no shabby/vintage goodness on it...go figure?! I guess you could say I wimped out...but I did love the colour combo and the interesting layout. Here is her card.
As you can see, I basically straight out cased Andrea's card with a few substitutions: French Script in the background, Echo Park Dots and Stripes DP for the red panel, different punches and dies, changed the sentiment and punched out some corrugated hearts using a Starbucks sleeve instead of the heart buttons. I also ironed my seam binding so the ribbon texture would match the clean lines of the layout (crinkled ribbon just didn't cut it).
I had great fun making this card - thanks, for the inspiration my friend :) Next time, when I have a bit more time on my hands, I will case a shabby/vintage card of yours, promise!
