Card For Sadie

I've had to make two cards for residents very close together, so, with a need for speed I turned to Pinterest for inspiration.  I decided to case a card by Judy May, which you can see here .  I love to case cards because I like starting out with a lot of the same stuff on the original card, then getting to the bit where you don't have something they used, so you have to use your imagination to think of something to use that captures the spirit of that card, the bit that impressed you, and then the card becomes your version.  Here's what I made:
Somewhere between Real Red and Cherry Cobbler lies Riding Hood Red, and this is the first time I've used this lovely colour, and the papers from the Twitterpated dsp that work with it.  The base card is the beautiful Baja Breeze.  I wanted to capture the oval shape in the centre from the original card, but don't have those particular embossing folders - yet!  (Don't worry, they are on my shopping list!)  So I used my Nellie Snellen dies (probably the most annoying dies in the world) and stamped on Happy Birthday from the Elementary Elegance stamp set.  I actually made this card before I made my Dynamic Duos card this week, and used the same treatment with the leaf spray, by cutting off the bird that comes with it and popping on a few tiny flowers with even tinier gems in the middle.  The leaves are Pear Pizzazz, which is the correct green from the dsp:


I thoroughly enjoyed making this card it came together very easily and the recipient really liked it. 
I'm off for a hop round to see what you've all been creating - that's the only good side to this winter weather, isn't it?  I'd much rather be indoors crafting, than out there in the cold!
Back soon
