Stampin Up, Global Design Project #012


This week we are to CASE a card done by Brian King.  Actually they just want you to take away some inspiration from Brian's card and create one of your own from something on his card.

So, here is mine. I loved the snow scene, especially the snowflake background, faintly showing.
I added my snow piles, I cheated, I used the Sleigh Ride thinlit set to create the shape, and just trimmed off the part of the design sticking up.

I think it's a very peaceful scene, something I seem to be aiming for a lot this year. I think we can all use some peaceful times with everything going on in our world and especially our country.

The silver tree is silver embossed with a silver foil star and the snow flakes are made using a versamark pad.    If you haven't tried it, you get a very tone on tone look, no matter what color your cardstock is.

Thanks for checking in. I hope both Brian and my cards are giving you some inspiration of your own.

Hi Lyn, It was hard to go past the snowy scene Brian created on his card. Your version is lovely too. What a great idea to use the Sleigh Ride edgelits to create your rolling snow banks! Thanks for playing at Global Design Project this week.

You are right, Lynn - this card is peaceful and serene. Nice work with these trees - such a beautiful card. I'm so glad that you played along with my CASE the Designer challenge this week at the Global Design Project. Thanks!

Very nice card. I think you captured the idea perfectly. I too tried to make a card for the challenge and posted it on my blog at: http://victoryfirst.blogspot.com/ This is so much fun meeting other people that enjoy stamping and blogging..

Pretty card, Lynn. Reminds me of a quiet snowy night. I can see the inspiration you derived form Brian's card. Thanks or playing along with Global Design Project.
