There is a new Muse in town, Maile Belles, a designer followed by many, many of us who love to make cards is the muse for the next few weeks at Case Study Challenge. I have so many of Maile's cards pinned and have watch her blog daily for anything new she might create. The card this week (Case Challenge #139) is textbook Maile, so CAS but with a twist. Here is Maile's card:
What did I love about it? The stamping on the short panel and that great partial die cut image on the front panel. Maile does this neat thing with partial embossing and cutting all at the same time. I have to admit, I have not been successful with this technique, but a little light bulb went on and I realized I could do something very similar using my Silhouette Cameo (probably a million people have thought of this idea already), but it was new to me!
I was happy with this card, but now that I have discovered how to recreate Maile's partial die cut technique, I wanted to take it to another level.
Can you tell that Maile's card really inspired me this week? I am very excited to see what next week's inspiration card looks like...I'm betting CAS, but with a twist!
