Today’s card is all about CASE-ing the Catalog. The Stampin’ Up! catalog is a great source for inspiration, creativity, and ideas. Each year the people that put the catalog together take great time and pains to put together the catalog from taking the photos, to organizing, and placing things. Some of the great features that are in the catalog are the little icons for You Can Make It!, & Quick + Easy. The You Can Make It! gives you the exact recipe for making the projects you see on the page. Quick & Easy icons show you projects you can make without a lot of time or crafting experience. Each one of these sections have tips and tricks to help you create the cards that are pictured.
Which is were the term CASE comes in. Case means to Copy and Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit. For this card I cased i from the new Annual catalog. I wanted to show everyone how easy and quick it is to go from no idea to a card in just minutes.
Here is the card that I cased from the catalog. Notice that they used Pool Party, Real Red, and Smokey Slate on their card. Now lets look at my version of this card.
For my version I went with a little different color pallette. I switched the Smokey Slate for Delightful Dijon and the Pool Party for Mint Macaron. I kept the Real Red because it really worked with each of these colors and because the Delightful Dijon was a natural and Pool Party is a subtle the pop of intense color with the real red draws your eye to the sentiment.
Measurements for card:
- Delightful Dijon cardstock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
- 2015-2017 In-color Designer Series Paper Stack (Delightful Dijon Strips) 5 1/4″ 4
