For this week’s Global Design Project, we get to CASE (copy and selectively edit) Emma Goddard’s beautiful “hello” card.

See how our designers “cased” Emma, then join in the fun, and add your design to our gallery.

I wanted to make a Christmas card, using the word “JOY,” with a wreath taking the place of “O.”  A Country Wreaths Die was used to cut More Dazzle Specialty Paper, and Alphabet a La Mode Dies were used to cut the “J” and “Y” from the same paper. To give the letters dimension, I used Foam Adhesive Sheets.

Cottage Wreaths JOY


For the background, I stamped the wreath, from the Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set, in Soft Sea Foam Ink on Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″. This was glued to a Mossy Meadow card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.


The pretty, paper bow is also from the Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set. I stamped it in Mossy Meadow Ink on Basic White Cardstock, used its Country Wreaths Die for cutting, and glued it in place.
