Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Susan Wong

Image may contain: text

Welcome back everyone 😊
I am once again joining in with the Crazy Crafters for a blog hop. This week we are all CASEing the works of Susan Wong

Here is the card from Susan's blog I have chosen to CASE

Bella & Friends for Fancy Friday - Susan Wong

The elements of this card that I was drawn to was something I have used just recently, which was more accidental before than on purpose.. I smudged ink when painting and couldn't cover it so chopped it out with a punch...You can see that card HERE.
The little bite out of the card in my opinion is just so cute and this time I decided it would be used on purpose lol

and here is my card

Hearts For You

#KOCreationscards #Labeleralphabet #Happybirthdaygorgeous #Butterfliesthinlits #Flowers #Garden #Nature #Sequins #Cardmaking Stampinup
I started by embossing the butterfly with embossing paste. I used the swallow tail thinlit from the Butterflies thinlit set to do this with! I mixed the embossing paste with Crumb Cake ink and then spread over the thinlit onto the card, when covered lift thinlit to reveal the pattern. *Wash thinlit and tools immediately! 
I cut out the butterfly in vellum and overlaid  this so the embossing peeped through. I trimmed off the tails so that the bottom of my butterfly wasn't past the bottom of mt card.
I stamped the leaf stems in Wild Wasabi and the flowers in Berry Burst using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. 
I topped this with a sentiment 'FOR YOU' using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set and a piece of Berry Burst seam binding ribbon.
This colour scheme was inspired by the Global Design Project Teams weekly challenge.

Aren't they just divine!

My Card base is Thick Whisper White card stock with a layer of Berry Burst card stock.
Using the Berry Burst card stock and tied the Whisper White twine around the card, I tied in a strip of black mini sequins and then tied a bow combined with a Corrugated Element. 
I finished the card with some of the black mini sequins glued over the flower centres and a couple of small hearts from the Hearts and Stars Elements.
 I used the 1" punch to chop out the half circle from the card front.

For the inside I stamped the same images as the front in the bottom right corner, adding some of the sequins and a small wooden heart.
I adore how this card finished, it is just so sweet and pretty and still manages to remain clean and relatively simple too.
