Come Sail Away for GDP#200

Global Design Project # 200

This week’s challenge is a designer, Janneke De Jong,  CASE challenge.  In this case, CASE means “copy and selectively edit” the sketch. 

Here’s the designer’s card:

My original thought was to combine two challenges, which you already know I love to do.  The second challenge called for a masculine card, but I didn’t pay attention to the deadline and missed it.  Surprised?  I think not.

Since I already had masculine cards on my mind, I decided to use the Come Sail Away Suite.  The colors, stamp and die bundle, DSP, and the Memories and More Card Park are spectacular.  I highly recommend the complete Suite, item 152715, or starting with the bundle of the stamp set and dies, item 151066.  Don’t forget to get the DSP, item 149481, as well.   I just checked, and the inventory is low, so if you want this must-have bundle, you need to order it ASAP.

Anyway, here’s my card:

While I followed the designer’s card closely, I did edit a few things.  The designer card has 3 obviously grouped items in the bottom left.  I used the lighthouse, wheel trinket, and the sentiment for my three items.  Instead of using an embossing folder on the background, I used very light DSP, which contrasts with the Crumb Cake cropped elements.  The coordinating Night of Navy/Sahara Sand baker’s twine really completes this card, although I could have used twine for the same effect.  The designer’s card has bling on the card.  I didn’t think bling would be appropriate, but three Night of Navy enamel dots, from the Happiness Blooms dots, placed in a triangle are subtle additions to the card.  

After I stamped the front of the envelope with the anchor, and added DSP to the envelope flap, I had finished my card for this challenge.

As Always, Thank You
