Hello there! Today's card is already in the hands of it's recipient. My grandma celebrated her 89th birthday today and I made this card for her. I was completely inspired by Laura's card here, at the CASE Study challenge. It would be impossible not to be inspired by Laura Bassen, her clean, graphic and crisp style never ceases to wow me.
So where did I grab my inspiration from? Ok, those hearts reminded me a lot to the rounded wings one of the butterflies in one of my newest PTI sets, Beautiful Butterflies. I also went with 3 of the 4 colors Laura used and I incorporated the diagonal stripes in the form of dry embossing.
I die cut the window with one of this spinner dies, adhered some vellum on the back and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment. I really love to heat emboss on vellum! The trick is to keep moving your heat tool all the time so that the vellum doesn't warp.
Thank you so much for visiting and have a fantastic week!
