This week we are joined by, and CASE-ing (Copy and Selectively Edit), Janneke de Jong!
As always, there will be plenty of amazing projects to see as part of this blog hop, so make sure you check out the rest of the lineup at the end of this post.
I had a hard time deciding which of Janneke's cards to CASE as she has made so many fantastic creations, but in the end, I decided on this card.
I really like the layout of this card. It's so simple but the result is stunning and you can change it up slightly to create a completely different card.
I actually made 2 cards using this layout, a simple version and a slightly stepped up version, and thought I'd post both as I couldn't decide which one I liked better.
This is the first card I created...
I used the Happy Celebrations stamp set and stamped the 'HAPPY' multiple times onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I then used the Celebrations Due embossing folder to emboss the 'HAPPY' in the center of the panel.
I used So Saffron and Calypso Coral cardstock for the layers and the card base is Bermuda Bay.
To step the card up a bit, I used the same technique but stamped and embossed the 'HAPPY' onto some scrap cardstock before colouring it in with a So Saffron Stampin' Write maker and fussy cutting each of the letters out.
I then used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the letters over the top of the 'HAPPY' in the center of the panel.
I should also mention that the colour inspiration came from this weeks TGIF Challenge #tgifc97. I have entered the 'stepped up' card into this challenge, as well as this weeks Global Design Project #GDP076 where the challenge is 'CASE the Designer'.
I hope you like these cards as much as I do. Please feel free to leave a comment below and don't forget to check out the rest of the blog hop!
