Blessings To You – A Cased Card

Hello, Stampers,

I decided to CASE a gorgeous card I saw on Hero Arts called Pretty Purples, by Mariana Grigsby.  This is her card:

I couldn’t resist casing her card with a few of my own changes.  Here is my version:

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESI love how it turned out…Mariana’s design inspired me so much that I just HAD to make one right after I saw it!  Have you ever felt an instant impulse as soon as you were inspired?  I used the same design except for the small strip of designer paper background exposed at the top.  I had a different tag, used twine instead, and a stamp set from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps called June Rose.  I used the sentiment from the same company in a different set.

I first cut the design paper to fit the front of my A2 card, then angled the layers, just as Mariana did.  I double stamped the image with VersaMark, once on the bottom layer, then once on the tag layer.  I embossed both with Stampendous detail silver Argent Fin Opaque embossing powder.  Then I used a few of my SU! markers to color them in, lined them up and popped up the tag.  I stamped the sentiment in SU! Perfect Plum, then added some clear rain drops for accent {sorry, can’t remember where I obtained those, at the moment}.  Whaddya think?  Leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you.

Let me know what inspires you.
