Global Design Project #GDP004

The challenge this week is called “Case the Designer”.

Love this card that Louise has designed.

Case the designerHere are the Rules for this challenge……

You can be inspired by ANYTHING on this card. What inspires you in this card to make it your own?
Here are some ideas of what you could be inspired by –
Theme – Christmas
Layout – Do you see those gorgeous layers? They are 2mm or 1/16″
Colours – Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Gold Glimmer
Stamp set – Wondrous Wreath or something similar like Circle of Spring or others.
Embellishments – the crystal effects, Linen Thread or that gorgeous gold glimmer heart.
Gee!…..there’s lots to think about. What inspires me? Everything about this card inspires me!
OK….lets take 3 elements of this design that I like.
1. Wreath
2. heart
3. the subtle layers
So I hope you like my take on this card.
I chose a strong colour – Rich Razzleberry and added a thin layer of Whisper White for a matting. The wreath was stamped onto card stock and embossed in white, then cut out with the Framelits.
The layers of matting and card base have been cut away and a piece of window sheet inserted in the inner section of the wreath to make it look like the heart is floating.
The Heart was given a touch of glamour with Dazzling Diamonds.
Even though this card started of in thought to be a Christmas Card…it has evolved into a great Wedding, Engagement or even Valentine’s Day Card
Hope you enjoy my version of Louise’s card…
