Each Thursday my Border Buddy Patsy Waggoner from the US and I take turns creating a card that we CASED from a current Stampin’ Up! catalogue. CASE stands for (Copy And Selectively Edit). The beautiful projects by the concept artists from Stampin' Up! are a great way to be inspired!
Today's card features the Prized Peony Suite which is gorgeous. When you CASE, you can copy it exactly, or selectively edit it by changing the colors or the stamp set or both. Today I choose to to change out the stamps and colours and just use the layout of the original card. The original card is from the Beginner Brochure and featured the Simply Citrus All Occasion Card Kit.
The Peony Garden Suite Collection includes:
* Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set (10% off)
* Peony Garden Designer Series Paper
* Square Vellum Doilies
* Elegant Faceted Gems
* Gray Granite 1/4" (6.4 mm) Shimmer Ribbon
* Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder
* Peony Dies (10% off)
This is such a simple layout but so pretty. I love how stamping on the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper has a "linen" look. It's got texture just from the design on the paper.
