CASE THE DESIGNER - #GDP008

While I am primarily a card maker, I like to push myself in other directions, even if they are slightly uncomfortable for me.  Since joining the Global Design Project, I have tried to be a little more creative in the projects I design, with things like Project Life and three dimensional projects.

This weeks theme is to CASE the Designer - Kylie Bertucci.  I normally take things so literally and my first thought was to CASE the card layout.  Instead I pushed myself to make something 3D using the colours in her card.

I haven't long had the Pillow Box die or the Corrugated cardstock and wanted to give them both a workout.  I love the look of the corrugation on the box, it adds a very interesting texture.  I also extended the box a little when I added the Cherry Cobbler top.
See the beautiful ribbon, all glittery?  That is the White Glitter ribbon from the Holiday catalogue.  My good friend Claire Daly shared how she coloured that back of the ribbon with a Stampin' Write marker, so I did too!.  It is worth a little effort to have a matching ribbon!

I can't wait to see how you take inspiration from Kylie's project when you play at Global Design Project with us!
