Global Design Project 080 | Case the Designer

I'm back for another Global Design Project Challenge! This week, we are CASE-ing the talented Louise Sharp! You can click her gorgeous project below to learn more about this challenge.

The first thing I noticed about this card was that bright pop of Real Read contrasted with subtle Soft Sky. I immediately thought "retro", so this card inspired me to go for the retro look, and I just LOVE how it turned out!

I have been using my burlap ribbon a ton lately - I just can't get enough! I especially love the shabby chic look of the ribbon rolled up and secured with a staple or two. You can use your linen thread to gather the tail end of your ribbon for the perfect finishing touch. I love the gentle curl of the Linen Thread - it really gives your project a whimsical feel, don't you think?

Follow along with me as I make this card on my video!

Here are the paper dimensions for this card:

Whew! I have been so incredibly busy in these last few days of Sale-a-Bration - I love it!!! I am finally here with another project sheet for you featuring another bright and happy card!

This card was so much fun to make. I love it when I can add an interesting background using my stamps, and I'm especially in love with the subtle look of the duplicate color on color look! I know I'm going to be using that idea for a lot more cards. This card was one of the options at a card buffet I put on with my demonstrator friend Cathy this past weekend, and it was really popular. The ladies loved the idea of breaking up that sentiment - it definitely gives some variety within your stamp sets!
