For this week’s Global Design Project, we get to CASE Janneke De Jong. You can see her beautiful card below, and clicking on it will take you to our gallery where you can hang your CASE of her card.

I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. This was layered with In Color Designer Paper in Soft Succulent, cut with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die.

Paradise Palms


Next, I cut basic White Cardstock with the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die. Then, I used a Paradise Palms Stamp to stamp Fresh Freesia Ink seven times. This is a great stamp, because it can be mountains, clouds, or water. The three palm trees, also a Paradise Palms Stamp, were stamped in Gorgeous Grape Ink.

The grass was made with a Palm Die and an Ombre Gift Bag in Soft Succulent. I chose the gift bag paper, rather than cardstock, to give the grass a lighter feel, and color shading.

The Paradise Palms Stamp Set and Palm Dies are in my Product List below. They can be purchased separately, or in a bundle for a 10% savings.


After gluing the grass, I stamped “Retirement wishes” in Memento Black Ink, and added splatter with a Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend. I did this by flicking the brush end against the cap onto the paper. This was really fun, but to insure I didn’t make a mess, it was done in my laundry room sink.

Prior to the final step of embellishing my card with Iridescent Rhinestones, I attached the top layer with Dimensionals.


Here is Janneke’ card. Can you see how I cased it?
