CTC250 – Case a Layout

Hello and thanks for dropping in tonight. It’s been a busy couple of weeks lately here with school holidays. We’ve fitted lots in and had a bunch of fun. We managed to get away down south to Yallingup for a weekend which was amazing. Such a gorgeous pocket of the state. If you ever visit WA make sure to include a trip to our gorgeous South West….and if you are from WA – we’ll I’m likely preaching to the converted!

Unfortunately the place we were staying didn’t allow pets, so we left our gorgeous girl Jessa with some friends and family. She had a weekend of long walks and cuddly naps.

I’ve used this weeks challenge as inspiration to create a ‘thank you for dog sitting’ card. I used the layout of the landscape card shown below, the one with merry merlot DSP.

For my card I’ve used a whisper white base and added a layer of pretty peacock embossed with the subtle embossing folder. On top of this I have added a layer of DSP from the Come to Gather DSP pack. The gingham strip of DSP is also from this same pack.

On a stitched square I have stamped the puppy footprint (from Happy Tails stamp set) in pretty peacock. The puppy is coloured using crumb cake blends and I have popped her up on dimensional.

I finished with the sentiment heat embossed in gold and a strip of the pretty peacock linen scalloped ribbon. I thought the linen ribbon tied in well with the DSP that had a bit of a linen look to it.

The challenges where we case a layout are great for everyone, but especially good if you have never done a challenge before. They are a great starting point. Will you join us this week? Click the image below to visit our Facebook page to upload your entry.

  1. I’m sure Jessa had a good holiday weekend as well! How awesome to be able to make such a beautiful handmade card for the occasion. I love your colour combination and the way you’ve switched out the elements from the inspiration card. Beautiful! 🙂 Siobhan.
