It’s our last challenge at Can You Case It? #166 After a number of years on the challenge circuit providing loads of amazing challenges and inspiration from talented Design Team Members, Can You Case It? is coming to a close.
To finish off, Eva has come up with a very cool challenge, it a grouping challenge or cluster grouping. This is when you arrange several elements together in a cluster. Just like this sketch.
Here is my design team inspiration.
I’ve been playing with the Naturally Eclectic suite again, but this time, I wanted to include those new-style emboss-only dies. There is a little trick to these, you have to add them last, even though they have to go on first. Let me explain…
I started with the sketch first, working out what I wanted where and choosing my colours. I decided on the spots design of the Designer Series Paper and choose coordinating Emerald Envy for my cardbase.
Lemon Lime Twist was another feature colour in the spots DSP so I used some of that colour cardstock for the vertical strip. The horizontal strip I kept as Whisper White so I could on stamp my sentiment.
I used the diamond thinlit die as my feature element in Peekaboo Peach. I used Peekaboo Peach ink to stamp my sentiment to echo the feature.
All the while I was creating this, I kept placing my elements but didn’t adhere anything. I knew I wanted to use those emboss only dies and of course they have to be in place for any sticking happens. Once I had all the positions worked out for all other elements then I was able to do the sticking.
I embossed two leaves on the base card and a diamond on the bottom of the Lemon Lime twist stip. Adhering all my elements in place gave me the look I was after.
