*****************************Now on to the project!**********************************

I decided to CASE (copy and share everything) a card from Pinterest. At the end of the post I shared the inspiration and the designer's blog. 


I created two almost identical cards based on the original. I have always been curious about the white on white on WHITE cards. It makes me think... what's up with all the white? But I must say I GET IT now. It's gorgeous...refined... classy...especially for wedding cards.




All the patterned cardstock came from a single SEI stack called white elegance. The cardstock is white with an embossed white pattern. I chose patterns that would blend in and complement each other.




One of the layers is punched with a Martha Stewart punch, the top note is made using Stampin' Up! nesting dies and accented with a punched element on top. A Prima flower and diamond shaped Recollections bling accent the card front.



Just look at all that dimension! But guess what? It can still fit in a normal envelope!!




Our Daily Bread Designs had the most wonderful wedding sentiment - recipe for a happy marriage - and the cake stamp is from Recollections. I used Versafine for the sentiment and Encore metallic ink for the cake. Oh and both of the external sentiments are from Recollections stamped in the same inks.



I bet you didn't notice....for extra flair, the card base and a couple of the layers are made with heavy weight cream shimmer cardstock from my stash. I am very happy with how it came out. Surprisingly, CASEing a card takes much longer than creating one from scratch.

Here's my inspiration by Debbie Stevens of PaperPastimes. I fell in love with the layers and the richness of her creation. 



Please be sure to hop over to all the other wonderful blogs. Here is the entire line-up:
