Whimsical Trees in Non-Traditional Colours. I spotted a card on Instagram a couple of weeks ago that really caught my eye and I HAD to CASE it (Copy And Share Everything). The card was on the Instagram Grid for Angela Meiritz-Reid, who is one of the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Team. I can see why she is on the Team! To see more of her designs, visit her Instagram Profile HERE
Angela’s card was inspired by the Merry & Bright card on page 40 of the Mini Catalogue July-December 2021. I find it amusing that I am CASEing a card that was itself CASEd! Angela appeared to use Night of Navy on Balmy Blue Card with the Sale-a-Bration BeDazzling card.
My first version uses Misty Moonlight with Craft White Ink applied in a halo around the centre of the card. The trees are die cut from Snowy White Velvet Sheets, which makes them very tactile, and I added Adhesive Sheet to the reverse before die cutting, which makes it easy to stick them in place. The large tree is layered onto white Vellum before being added to the card with Dimensionals.
I added some Snowy White Velvet Stars and a White Heat Embossed sentiment to finish the layer off, before adding it to a Misty Moonlight Mat and Card Base.
I decided to go very non-traditional as well, using Magenta Madness ink on Polished Pink card. Again I layered these on both a mat and the card base, both in Polished Pink.
I used the Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper for the die cuts this time, but still layered the large tree on White Vellum. I thought about using Polished Pink Shimmer Vellum, but decided that was a pink step too far!
Can you see that I spritzed some Clear Wink of Stella onto the front of the card? In ‘real life’ it adds a wonderful shimmer to the card. The sentiment is on Basic Black card to add a real ‘pop’ to this version of the card. I love the look of bright pink and black, it is just so much fun.
So what do you think? Will you have a go at these cards, or will you CASE cards from the Catalogue and see what you come up with?
