Lovely Lily Pad Catalog Card CASED

Hello and welcome to my blog; today we are going to be CASEing the 2020 Saleabration Brochure.  We are using one of the Lovely Lily Pad Cards as our inspiration today and we are going to change it up a little using the Tropical Chic Stamp Set and the 2018-2020 In Colors from the Annual Catalog.  These are the In Colors that will be leaving us soon, and I can say I will be very sad to see them go.  If you have any of the in colors currently now's the time to stock up on your favorite cardstock ink refills etc.  If you don't have them you need to get them, because once they are on the retiring list they will more than likely sale out quickly they usually do.   Enough of the jibber jabber here's a look at the card and the inspiration card.


I received the Lovely Lily Pad card from my friend Kay Cogbill when I took part in her team's CASE the Catalog Swap.  You have seen many of those cards shared here for my Case the Catalog Series each Sunday.  So I thought since Sale-A-Bration will be ending soon it would be a good thing to share taking inspiration from the catalog and Kay's card and doing a little Copy And Selectively Editing.  So I used her card from the Catalog Swap as my jumping off point.


So for my version of Kay's card I used the Tropical Chic stamp set and matching Tropical Dies to stamp and cut out the palm leaves and tropical leaves from that set.  I used Call Me Clover ink to stamp all three on to whisper white cardstock.  I stamped each leaves in either 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation stamping to create the three different ink shades you see here.  On the card that Kay made you can see the ombre look in the cardstock that was used; I picked the generational stamping as my ombre element.  I did keep the vellum circle behind the elements but I went a little larger then the inspiration piece.


I then used the Lily Pad Dies and cut out my elements using scraps of the 2018-2020 In Colors.  I cut each of the same die in Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, and Blueberry Bushel.  Each of these were glued to my card front in the same way as the inspiration card.  Slightly off setting them to one side each time, and alternating how they went with the point up or down.  I then added the sentiment.  I picked the Congratulations from Lily Pad Lake and punched it out using the Classic Label punch.  I added this to the leaves with dimensionals and then added a bow from the Lovely Lipstick ribbon with a mini glue dot.  My entire card front was then added to a side folding thick whisper white card base.
