Would you believe another CASE (Copy and Share Everything) card? You'd better believe it because I'm madly making cards about which I can blog while I'm on my trip!
But this CASE is one that I do weekly as part of my participation in my online Stampin' Up! demonstrator group, SUDSOL. (By the way – if you're a demonstrator, I highy recommend this group as one that really helps me focus on both my creativity and my business. If you're not a demonstrator, why don't you join me with the Big Island Stampers?! There's a link, "Join My Team," at the top of the page. If you join me this month, I'll give you a FREE three-month subscription to SUDSOL!)
Once again I found a card with colors that are just not my style. I'm sure they're someone's style or they would not have been published in the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator magazine, Stampin' Success! But I did like the basic layout, so I went with that.
Here's what I did that's the same as the original. I used:
- the Ticket Punch and a Christmas Stamp to go with it for the greeting at the top
- the fun new Silver 1/8" Ribbon from the Stampin' Up! 2013 Holiday Catalog
- Designer Series Paper (DSP) for the top layer
- a strip of a different color DSP at the bottom of the DSP layer
For the DSP for my card, I used the beautiful Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) also from the Holiday Catalog. In the original card, the strip of paper at the bottom was a piece of Washi Tape. But I was using some colors that as of right now do not have a coordinating roll of Washi Tape. So I pulled out another piece of the same DSP set and cut a little strip of that.
The stamp set that I used with the Ticket Punch is That's The Ticket. This set has 8 stamps for different occasions and holidays – very versatile and I keep forgetting that I have it!
The Designer Series Paper has four different blues in it, along with two neutrals. I used Island Indigo Card Stock for the card base, and Island Indigo and Coastal Cabana ink for the ticket stamps.
After all the more complicated cards I've been making lately, it was nice to make a card with just a few elements. Fun and QUICK!!!
