IBC layout CASE

This is one of the cards for tonight's stamp camp. Because my "campers" will be getting their copies of their catalogs tonight, I want to focus on the usefulness of the catalog outside of just ordering from it. It's such a resource of IDEAS! I know that when I started stamping, I felt the pressure to come up with ideas for cards - as though I should know how to do it just because I wanted to. Hopefully, this can help them see that you don't have to make an exact replica, you can instead look for inspiration to guide you.

This layout was inspired by the layout on page 55 (see below for photo of original in the catalog) of the new Idea Book & Catalog. I was going to do a straight CASE of the layout using different colors, but then I didn't like how it was turning out, so I just started fiddling with the elements. I just LOVE how soothing these colors are together.

Another feature that I love about this card is that is uses ONE set, rather than multiples. A bonus for the budget-conscious stamper.
