Hello friends, it's that time again for another Global Design Project entry and this week's challenge is to case the designer Jessica Williams. "Copy and Selectively Edit".
Here is Jessica's gorgeous card:
I have taken the vellum overlay and floral imagery as well as the top folding landscape format of her card. You can also click on the picture to see more of the creative entries for this challenge.
For my card, I have used the hostess stamp set, "Best Thoughts". The imagery and sentiment of this set was perfect for a Thinking of You card that I have made for a friend to offer moral support and hope for better things to come.
I have used vellum overlay on top and gold heat embossed both the sentiment "You're in my thoughts" and the butterfly. To secure the vellum, I have opted to sew this on my sewing machine with Stampin' Up! gold metallic thread in place of a ribbon. It didn't exactly turn out straight lol but I got there hehe. As you can see all is not lost, as I have wrapped around extra gold metallic thread to rectify the crookedness hehe and adds to the handmade look hehe. I have placed a small panel of gold glimmer paper accent on the side to accentuate the gold stitching.
The panel with the flower and vellum overlay have been raised on fun foam to give an even platform so it wont crease in the mail. I have used a strip of Timeless Elegance designer series paper on the end, the bold black and white striping just adds a touch of elegance. Lastly, just to add some bling I have added small rhinestones and silver sequins on the vellum overlay and brings out the vellum.
Inside the card I have just showed the top of the flower so as to have space for the sentiment and the butterfly symbolising hope and reflect the greeting: "The best is yet to come". I have watercoloured in the images with same colours and added orange and light grey for the butterfly wings on watercolour paper. Lastly I added a silver rhinestone on the butterfly's wings for an accent. I hope you like this card and found some inspiration to give it a go. This was just one example, as Stampin' Up! have so many great flower stamp sets you could use in place of this one and would be perfect with this composition.
For more inspirations be sure to take a look at the creative entries over at Global Design Project and hope you will join in the fun.
