Have you ever sat down to make a card or scrapbook layout and just have zero, I mean ZERO inspiration? That was me today and I needed a card for a friend who is marking the first anniversary of her husbands passing. I lead a GriefShare group at my church and she is in this small group and I had to do something for her. So, what did I do? I found a picture of a card that I really liked. This is called CASEing. Unfortunately either I saw it in person, I really don’t remember, or someone posted the picture on the internet without a name because there was no clue in the picture as to whose idea it was. Sorry, if this layout looks like one of yours, let me know and I’ll give you credit. Thanks!
I used the same basic layout but I switched the side the stamped image is on and added flowers. I also changed the colors and papers completely.
The original was done with the Maritime DSP from last year’s Annual Catalog. Mine is done with the Perfect Pennants stamp set and Sweet Li’l Things DSP, I also used a touch of Calypso Coral for the background. I embossed that with the Lucky Stars Embossing folder. I just love all of the texture and polka dots but I’m not sure you can really see the embossing in the pictures. Sorry, please be patient, I’m working on my photography.
All of the supplies needed to make this card are listed at the bottom of the post. You can get these at my online store HERE. Why don’t you hop on over there and take a look for supplies that you’ll need for your upcoming projects. I hope this inspired you that even when you are feeling ZERO inspiration, you can still make something sweet.
Now go and create something sweet for somebody!
