I chose an awesome card from Laura Bassen. When I think of her, I think of plaid! She has done some amazing cards with hand-stamped plaid, including this beauty:
Oh man- how could I even attempt to CASE this? It's perfect! I went with a thinner plaid, using diagonal stripes in green and coral:
The "JOY" was embossed in white over the plaid. The layout was kept pretty much the same. Laura, I hope I did okay!! :)
As a bonus, I have two more. I love this card from Elena:
..and here's my interpretation:
For the card base, I used the new metallic paper from CSS in white pearl. It's photographing slightly pink, but it is definitely a neutral pearl. I love how heavy it is- perfect for a card base!
Last is a great card from Laurie:
I love the way she used an imprint plate for the background, and left so much white space. I kept a lot of the design elements the same on this one too!
When I found out that the group challenge was "CASE of Joy," I wanted to CASE every designer on the CSS DT!! I had big plans to make lots and lots of cards....but sadly I could only manage these three.
I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else made:Dana
