It is time for a new muse over at CASE Study, please welcome…. Joy Taylor to the floor! Joy is our June muse so we have four wonderful installments for Joys creative master works for us to take inspiration from. Joy had never appeared radar before she was announced as the muse, I popped over to her blog to find the most amazing cards, I just adore her style it is a little vintage but not in an over done way and I looked at her profile to see she is an Aussie which made me feel even worse that I had never found her blog before. If you have been living under a rock like me, you really must go check her out….http://jtcardmaking.blogspot.com.au/
I got a lot of my ranting out of my system with yesterdays post so its ok this one will be much shorter and only about cards but can I just say thank you for the heartwarming comments I have received it just made me feel all warm and fuzzy all over!
To the left is Joy‘s card for us to break down and get inspired by, I just loved her card and I am pretty sure you can see what elements I was inspired by, just in case you can’t I will enplane. I am bit of a fan of a banner down the center of a card so I used that element and I just added a small scallop edge down the sides. I did not make a flower rosette in place of that I have used the new Framelit label die from Stampin’ Up!. Ribbon is kind of my thing so I just had to add a bow in Always Artichoke seam binding. I had been watched the Queen’s diamond jubilee on television prior to making this card so I took a little inspiration for that, and donned my butterfly with a Royal Crown and the colour’s remind me of the rich carpeting that floors Royal Palaces.
Here is the inside of the card, I am not sure about the blue floral boarder and wondering if I should of used a solid colour…. I may pull the card apart and try a different paper.
