For this week’s Global Design Project, we get to CASE (copy and selectively edit) Susan Wong’s fun project.
See how our designers “cased” Susan, then join in the fun, and add your design to our gallery.
I love Susan’s night sky and green trees, and couldn’t wait to give it a try. First, I used the largest Stylish Shapes circle die to cut a hole in scratch paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″, making a stencil. I placed the stencil on top of Basic White Cardstock of equal size, securing it with Painter’s Tape.
Second, I applied three colors of blue ink with Blending Brushes, starting at the bottom with Tahitian Tide. Third, I moved to the top and applied Night of Navy, finishing in the middle with Blueberry Bushel Ink. It’s always fun to remove the stencil, and see what lies beneath! To complete my sky, I added tiny dots of Wink of Stella, making perfect little stars.
Before gluing my sky to a Night Of Navy card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy Ink. “God’s blessings to you” is from the Hope & Peace Stamp Set, available in Online Exclusives, which you can find by clicking on its picture in my Product List below.
This is my first Christmas card for 2023, although, this sentiment could be for many occasions.
To complete the design, I cut three trees from Shaded Spruce and Garden Green Cardstock, and attached them with Dimensionals. The tree is from the Reindeer Die Set, a favorite from last year, and is in our current Annual Catalog. The Regal Reindeer Stamp Set has a darling, Gray Granite, bunny, who hopped on at the last minute. Think we should let him stay?
