On the CASE: Part Three

Here's my last attempt at CASEing the Gingersnap Creations Design Team for the latest Blue Moon Challenge.

As my inspiration this time, I decided to use a card I had seen on Jean Franks Beck's blog, Bluebird Paperie. Jean had done a phenomenal vintage grid card and I decided to use this as my jumping off point. She had even included some great tips for creating the same style card right in her post!

The talented and terrific Jean is not only a full-fledged double-term Gingerm, she's also on the Cornish Heritage Farms Design team!

I really loved the coordinating papers Jean used and how she stamped both her focal image and her sentiment on subtly patterned paper. She picked some great inchies which worked perfectly with her image and used a vintage metal tag to complete the look.

For my take on her card, I dug up my much neglected BasicGrey 6x6 pad of Stella Ruby papers. I love this collection (too bad it retired) as I actually used all the neutral papers as well as the beautifully patterned ones. I created my inchies from these and, as Stella Ruby has a sewing theme, I also dug out my B-Line sewing stamps. So pretty!

Here's how it all came out:

Mending the Soul
sentiment and woman sewing (B-Line Designs)
Papers: various papers from the Stella Ruby 6x6 pack (BasicGrey)
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip (Stampin Up)
Ink: Timber Brown (Stazon)
Embellishments: 3 snaps

Well, that's it for me stealing inspiration from my fellow Design Team members. Your turn!
