Catalog CASE...Sort Of


There's a picture of a really cute card on page 28 of the Holiday Catalog.  This card is a very scaled-down version, but I like the simplicity.  It's crazy how these colors and patterns can be so different yet they somehow work together. 

Here's everything I used:

Stamps:
Well Scripted (retired)

Paper:
Raspberry Ripple Card Stock
     8-1/2x5-1/2 Card Base
     Scrap for Butterfly
More Mustard Card Stock
     2x4....I used the Edgelit on this large piece and then cut it down to the size shown.
Very Vanilla Card Stock
     4x5-1/2 Base for Patterned Paper
     I later cut the entire thing down to 3-3/4x5.  I like more of the base card showing. 
     Plus, by layering the paper on a larger piece and then cutting it to size, I got nice,
     clean edges.  You can cut 1/4 inch off of one side, but I cut 1/8 inch off the top
     and bottom.  That way, I have the same amount of the patterned paper showing
     at the top and bottom.
Orchard Harvest DSP
     All strips are 4x1 except the green piece which is 4x1-1/4.

Ink:
Early Espresso Stamp Pad

Accessories:
Beautiful Wings Embosslit
Finishing Touches Edgelit
Extra-Large Oval Punch
Pearls
Stampin'  Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!
