Below is an image of all of the crew and where they are from around the globe. Such a wonderfully talented and lovely group of people.
This month we are CASeing the Mini Duo. So I have CASed a card from page 11 in the Sale a-bration! Catalogue and used a new bundle from the Mini Catalogue. Here is the card that I have CASed.
And here is my project. I have left the background layer reversed as I had cut it wrong. Silly me, it happens but it still worked and I don't want to waste my precious DSP.
- Start with a Basic White card measuring 21cm x 14.9cm scored and folded in half
- Cut the two pieces of DSP to measure 11.5cm x 10.5cm
- Cut both pieces of DSP from the top right corner across and down to 3.5cm above the bottom left hand corner
- Glue both to the card front
- Die cut the largest Stitched Circle Basic White card stock from the Stylish Shapes Dies and adhere this to the card front using Dimensionals
- On Basic White Card Stock Stamp the flowers in Calypso Coral and stamped off Calypso Coral. Then the leaves in Evening Evergreen ink.
