Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest - Jennifer Michalski

Welcome and thank you for joining me in a special Crazy Crafters team blog hop.

We are hopping with a special guest - The talented Jennifer Michalski.

The theme of this blog hop was to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) one of Jennifer's cards.

Here is the card of Jennifer's that I chose to CASE:

Here is my version:

My original card idea was going to use a Butterfly as well, but I decided at the last minute to go with a flower theme. I have used the same DSP series paper as Jennifer's card, but I have chosen a very different pattern from the pack.

I used Basic Black for my card base, layered with a piece of Designer Series Paper from the retired Botanical Gardens series. My horizontal cardstock strip is Old Olive, and I heat embossed in black my sentiment, which comes from the Rose Wonder stamp set. These pieces were all adhered using Snail adhesive.

My flower was made using the Botanical Builder Framelits and some Old Olive, Cajun Craze & Hello Honey cardstock. My flower pieces were attached using Tombow glue.

I found this a fairly quick and easy card to create, and I plan to make a few more as it is a great way to show off (or should I say "use up") the beautiful papers in my fairly large DSP collection.

Here is a list of the supplies and tools used to create this card:
