I was so inspired by this week's inspiration project by Anja Curvers! I think I CASEd almost every single element of her card:
I stamped a sweet little elephant from WPlus9 Unforgettable stamp set to mimic Anja's happy turtle. He was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics. The flowers are from Serendipity Stamp's Summer Flower Pops, also colored with Copics, and cut out four times in different sizes, layered together, and fluffed up. Thin strips of black cs create the stems. The little tag on the flowers reflects Anja's small tag that also says, "hello." My background was dry embossed with a Lifestyle Crafts Classic folder, holding to a similar graphic background pattern found in Anja's stenciled leaves. I lightly blended HA Soft Stone shadow ink over the top of the texture. The main tag was white heat embossed with x's and o's from PTI's Big Hugs stamp set and ink blended using DI Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, and Worn Lipstick. The main sentiment is also from PTI's Big Hugs stamps and dies. "Sending" was white heat embossed on black cs, and "hugs" was die cut from a scrap of cardstock (brand unknown). The bottom corners of the background panel were rounded similar to the bottom shape of Anja's card. Black textured twine completes the top of the tag.
Thanks for coming over to visit. Have a wonderful day!
