A couple of weeks ago when I was creating a card for a Blog Hop I was in I created this card. I wasn’t happy with it for the Blog Hop but I thought I would share it with you now. It is not my usual style so I didn’t feel comfortable with it. 🙂
At the time the theme of the Blog Hop was to be using a product from the current Catalogue. If you go back a few posts (or head -> HERE) you can see what I ended up with.
I was having trouble working out what to make for it initially so I thought I would CASE a card from the catalogue. The card on page 99 of the catalogue caught my eye so I thought I would use that as inspiration.
This was the inspiration card.
Details for my card I created up above.
The Designer Series Paper strip is from Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Razzleberry Strip is embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
The tag and the background was stamped with the Timeless Textures stamp set. I sponged around the edge with White Craft Ink and distressed the edges. The little sprigs were diecut from the Botanical Tags Thinlits cut from Mossy Meadow card. The circle is stamped with images from the Botanical Bliss stamp set. I swirled around a couple of loops of Linen Thread behind the circle.
So certainly different. Whether you like it or not just remember that the catalogue can be a great source of inspiration to create your next card.
