CASE: Boughs of Jolly

We loved the look of our Boughs of Jolly card, so we decided to CASE the layout! If you’re looking for some new ideas, try your hand at copying and sharing everything!

For our Wishing You a Happy Retirement card, we used the textured stamp from the Brightest Beauty Bundle to stamp on three strips of Basic White Cardstock using three different inks. Then we used Paper Snips Scissors to distress the edges. We offset the three strips and adhered them to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Next we stamped and heat-embossed the floral image twice on vellum. After cutting both branches out, we layered one over the other to create a larger branch image. Fun fact: this floral image was designed after the golden wattle, which is Australia’s national floral emblem. Traditionally this plant has yellow flowers and green stems, but we decided that we loved the white coloring for this project. To finish off the card we used a few Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins to give the card some shine. We colored the white sequins with a Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend to tie in with the other card colors.

If you like what you see, don’t be afraid to CASE it! You could copy the layout, or you could mimic the colors or the techniques—the possibilities are endless!
