CASEing Kylie Bertucci for Global Design Project #026

I am officially a periscope fan! I love interacting with lovers of craft from all around the world, it gives me such a buzz. I hope that you are following me as they got a sneak peek of this card this week. If you aren't you can click here to follow me you will need the periscope app for your phone. I knew I wanted to show them my card from the Global Design Project and realised I had already sent it to my friends! So I whipped up the same card but just selectively edited some things.  

I cased my card by Copying and Selectively editing parts of my previous card I posted a few days ago. You can see it here - Click here I used the incredible sketch from the Global Design Project challenge blog this week.
Here is my card - 


I pretty much used the same layout as this is the idea from the sketch - but just made a few subtle changes. I added the splatters in smoky slate in the background using the Timeless Textures Stamp set. I also changed the Sentiment and now it is more appropriate for a wedding card which I know will come in handy.
I also, thanks to Michelle Last, added the pears but coloured them in with a black sharpie. I love this idea and I think my Pearl embellishments are going to get used a whole lot more.
I also added a black bloomin' hearts thinlits behind the red one instead of the white.
So just slight changes - but it feels similar yet different.

Casing a card you have made is a great way to keep the creative juices going without getting too much brain strain. If you really love an old card - revisit it and bring it back to live again with a good CASE. Changing just a few elements can make a big difference and yet the card can come together much quicker than creating from scratch.
