This week’s Global Design Project challenge is a special CASE the Designer. It’s special to me because we are CASEing Brian King, my Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.
Here’s Brian’s card that we will CASE (Copy and Share Everything) this week. When you use another designer’s card like this for inspiration, you can use the layout, theme, color palette or any part that drives you to make something.
My card encompasses a couple of things that make Brian’s card unique. I chose to use a similar color palette, and the slope in the landscape is a prevalent part of the card for me too. But one thing isn’t so obvious…
What truly inspires me about Brian’s cards is the way he makes a clean and simple design look so easy, but in reality, it’s not. Every detail is meticulously planned. No element competes with any other and each element relies on the other for perfect balance in design.
For my snowy card, I used the Happy Scenes Photopolymer Bundle by Stampin’ Up! This bundle is a great way to make a scene for any season through the view of a window.
I stamped the trees and snow with Pool Party ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock. I then stamped the trees again on a piece of Pool Party party with the same ink. I cut out the hill and pieced it together behind the window die cut.
The window die cut is layered over embossed snow made with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The sentiment from the same stamp set is embossed over Cherry Cobbler card stock, trimmed then snipped into a banner shape.
I hope you enjoyed this card and get inspired to make your own CASE of Brian’s card. Join us at Global Design Project to play along. Thanks for visiting.
