Heartfelt Blooms for GDP # 124

CAS(E) the Designer for Global Design Project # 124

I just love the beauty of this flat stamp, free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration, and have used it a number of times.  I’ve said it before, but it’s important to remember that you do not want to to over-ink this stamp for the best results.  If you over-ink it, you will wind up with an ugly blob instead of a beautiful floral print.  For this card, I used Basic Black and Pacific Point on Whisper White.  I think this color combination is stunning, and it can also be elegant with the additional of silver metallic enamel shapes and silver thread for embellishments.

Copy and Selectively Edit for this CAS(E)

While I have been glancing at this sketch all week, this card idea literally popped in my head today.  Nothing like last minute because the challenge link closes in 4 hours.    Louise Sharp is this week’s designer, and her inspiration card follows:

The center element was created by cropping out the Bloom using the Layering Circle Dies, including the scalloped circle. Two layers of dimenstionals really allow this element to pop up off the cardstock.  My first edit is with the thread, which I put behind the circle layers.   My sentiment is on the bottom right corner instead of top right, mainly because it fit there.  The silver metallic enamel shapes were a last minute addition because I felt the card just needed a little something.
