The Shameless CASING Continues!

I just can't help myself. There's SO many fabulous cards out there and I needed a short break from designing my own. But next week it's back to my own work! I just loved this card by lacyquilter over at SplitCoastStampers. I just had to make it. I did change the color of the ribbon. She used a blue grosgrain ribbon and I changed it out for the moss green grosgrain ribbon. I hadn't incorporated any blue into my card to accompany the ribbon. What I thought was fun here was the Lumiere I used on the berries. It game them a nice white shiny look. I don't get a chance to use that stuff very often and when I do I REALLY like the looks of it.

This card had a lot of pieces to it but it was SO worth it when I was done. And the best thing about this card is all of the stamps used in it are NOT retiring!!!

When making a card such as this be sure to write the measurements down on a post it and stick it on the inside of the card. This way they are always available for you. This layout is perfect for a lot of different stamps out there. The outer pieces here were done using a wheel but they can also be done using decorative papers. Play around with it and have fun! That's what it's all about!!

Thank you for stopping by!
