case study no.2

It’s Thursday and I’m excited to be back with another case study inspiration piece for you. If you missed my post last week, I’m honoured to be the October Muse for the CASE Study ChallengeBlog. This week there is a new inspiration card for you and I’m playing along with the CASE Study designers with a new spin on it. To see the inspiration design and all the great twists on it, be sure to stop by their blog here.

Last week my card design was an interesting departure from the original but this week I decided to stay a little truer to the inspiration piece. Instead of using layers of tape measure trim, I’ve folded little strips of patterned paper in half and then adhered them for a fringe-like effect.

A cluster of goodies is always my favorite way to embellish a design. These lovely Cosmo Cricket Brads come pre-printed with lovely words to create a sentiment.

The new Lily Bee Persnickety line is one of my recent favorites. Such sweet colors and prints. If you’d like to recreate this card with the folded fringe layers, I cut a couple 3/4″ strips from the 6×6 papers and then cut them into 3 inch lengths. Fold the cut strips into half and adhere starting from the bottom layer and working up. The finished card base will be 5.5 x 3.75″ in size for a perfect fit.


Have an inspiring day!
